Umweltwerkstätte / Environment Workshops
Since February 2011 Kulturlabor Trial&Error is reinventing primary school education. We are coaching kids of the 4, 5 and 6th grade of several schools in Berlin in environmental awareness through iinterdisciplinary and interactive working groups.
The workshops are based on do-it-yourself experience, the concept of trial and error as well as nature walks and trash tours. The kids learn in an environment of games, discovering and discussion about topics for example:
+ How to change our perception of waste?
+ Wat is environment and what is my role in this environment?
+ How can I adjust my day to contribute towards a more a more sustainable environment

Trash of the month
Creative workshops to check out one specific trash-material very close and give an upcycling workshop for this material.
This workshop concept won the first Price in the Trenntwende 2011 - competition: Great waste ideas and sustainable sollutions.
*Trash of the Month workshops are on hold in search for a new location*
Previous free “Trash of the Month” workshops and experimenting happened at Open design city, Prinzessinnenstraße 19-20. From ca. 20.00 on - sometimes with nice live music, lecture or a film!
So far we had the topics
** bikepieces - experimenting on bikepieces workshop and a talk from the 2 bike messengers Roland and William, giving a perspective of a self organised bike messenger collective called “Fahrwerk”.
** paper - a workshop on how to upcycle used paper, into nice books, boxes, bowls, curtains, chairs and much more.
** old umbrellas - communal sewing of a massive waterresistant curtain - all together to make a cover for the KIEZMOBIL out of thrown away neukölln bad quality umbrellas!
** trash to go - Trial&Error moved out of their project space und into another one. Cleaning the basement meant also finding lots of nice, meaningful and hidden treasures to find a new owner.
** food - or better FOOD WASTE and the impact of it on social economical structures. We hosted a lecture about dumpsterdiving, a food swap, a screening of a documentary about food waste and a discussion about social, environmental and sustainable solutions.
** candles - a practical workshop on how to actually do it yourself with free space for improvising.
** geschenkpapier - shortly after christmas usually u can find lots of wrappingpaper. We made a street art action of those in combination with lots of other nice sticky paper.
** coconuts&clothswap - right in time for spring, we decided to get rid of some old clothes and to get some new spirit in through a clothswap and upcycling-sewing station. To get enough energy we had nice coconutwater to share for free with everyone.
** recyclingpaper - a practical workshop on how to make handmade recyclingpaper and a presentation on the chemical paper production process and its impact on our environment.
In spring and summer 2010 Kulturlabor Trial&Error are building a mobile workshop wagon, with people from the neighborhood for the neighborhood. There will be 4 Upcyclingworkshops from Mai to July to build the wagon. The mobile workshop will be used to make workshops in public space, and will be constructed form 90% trash, sourced from the local environment. For more information check out our Kiezmobil blog.
A series of workshops taking place in Berlin, Germany and Asturias, Spain. Ideas of how to upcycle household waste into useful items has been collected throughout 2010, and will be published in a book with manuals in spring 2011. For updates about the project visit www.upcycle.it
