In Berlin you can contribute to your local environment and upcycle art all as part of your teambuilding event!
Albert Einstein once said: “If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live”. Now there’s a thought with a full force of sustainable gravity to consider for your next teambuilding event.
In Mark Felstead’s latest episode of Berlin’s Sleeping Beauties (a joint project between the AXICA Event Centre and CMW), he talks again to Patrick Havenstein from Teamgeist about a very creative and sustainable teambuilding event – The Insect Hotel!
Patrick introduces the XXL Insect Hotel project and explains how it can help us be creative while doing something positive for the environment at the same time. The basic idea is all about creating a home for those bees.
Patrick is indeed a busy bee, too, and in a second fly past, discusses ‘Sustainable Art’ and how to sculpture to create ‘Upcycling Art’, a project – using discarded work clothes and chicken mess to create sculptures – which not only has zero material waste but one which can also lead to awards and charity donations.

STOP PRESS: The AXICA Ideenfrühstück goes hybrid
The Ideenfrühstück at the AXICA (ideas breakfast) has become a very popular event among the German event professionals, providing a weekly platform for inspiration, innovation and ideas exchange.
Initially it was held as a physical event, with a sumptuous breakfast at the AXICA to follow. More recently, it has become a virtual event, proving equally as popular with over 300 event professionals logging in to view a line up of top guests and speakers.
On 10 June, (09.00 CET), for the first time, the ideas breakfast goes hybrid and will be in English.
The live part event will have an audience of 50 people (because that is now allowed in Berlin provide all the appropriate hygiene measures are taken) and those wishing to join the virtual audience and explore the possibilities for hybrid events in Berlin, can register here.
