Take a look at our projects:
- Earth Hour 2019:
The Earth Hour is the biggest symbolic climate campaign in the world in which millions of people show climate action by turning down their lights between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m on 30 March 2019. Therefore, on the evening of Earth Hour we want to organise a special event for young people to participate. Find more about the Earth Hour here.
As podcasts are a great medium for young audience, we want to start or own podcast on the topic of youth empowerment.
- Divestment seminars
The seminars should focus on reinvesting money in pro-environmental ventures, away from negative investments.
- Riverwalk 2019
As last years Riverwalk was a huge success and a lot of fun, we will be back this year with various acitivites, workshops and other super cool stuff. Find out everything about the Riverwalk 2018 here.
We will focus on workshops and working on sustainability projects in Germany (near Leipzig).
Art4Change will explore the overlap of using art for activism, focusing on film but also other forms of expression as well as the topic plastic in the Danube.

We are organising a contest for youth to express themselves through writing, focused on plastic.

Microplastics in cosmetics is a real thing. We want to start a project focussing on green alternatives.

There are two school workshops planned. One to inform children about plastic (-waste) and the other to create their own sustainable alternative for one plastic product in their daily life.
- Plastic stop workshop
workshops for primary and high school kids about the problems the world is facing because of plastic waste today and why plastic consumption should be reduced/replaced.
