some reflections on clim@ventures...

 When students or adults take part in an micro-adventure they

  • learn how to use the power of storytelling and how  to report from their sustainability adventures
  • gain knowledge, perspectives from experiments and micro-adventures
  • interact with people from other countries to get inspiration for future projects and sustainable work options
  • grow their insights and networks of Europe-wide SDG-initiatives and -projects
  • increase media competence for communication
  • strengthen their capabilities to deal with complexity and strengthen one's own judgment of media sources
  • will actively help shape the future "new green deal“ of the European Union
  • lincrease language competences - as they will have the (virtual) exchange in English.

cycling against climate-change

Cycling is healthy. Cycling is fun. But above all, cycling is an optimal form of climate-friendly transportation! However, cycling in many cities is unfortunately not always safe. And many places have not (yet) adapted their infrastructure well to the needs of cyclists. When approaching a city or town via bike questions arise:

How do you get into a place as a cyclist? On a safe bike path? Next to a noisy federal highway? Once you are in the town - how does it look like for a cyclist to get around? Are there many bike lanes or traffic-calmed zones in towns where cyclists are also allowed to ride? Are there safer barriers? Are there service stations, e.g. to have a small repair done?

We will explore these questions on selected routes for selected cities or towns – within Germany, Europe and maybe also outside of Europe! The research assignments encourage students to conduct similar research in the areas around their homes and, if necessary, to become politically active if a situation is not satisfactory: combine engagement for climate protection with sports, fun and fitness!

bike-tour from glonn to konstanz

300 km, 2500 meters of altitude - but only 100 km on bike paths! The balance of my little self-experience tour is very mixed. Wonderful landscapes, cozy little villages but the primacy of cars - especially in the small towns - have shown me: There is still a lot to do before the bicycle will replace the car as a safe means of transport. I'm staying tuned! And I am not alone: In Germany, there are more and more municipalities where citizens are calling for a better cycling infrastructure. And maybe I can also activate and motivate kids from schools in the future to get involved politically - after experiencing for themselves a "micro bike adventure" in their neighborhood....

self-experience: how biker-friendly are cities?

a little story about cycling with "new eyes": Where are bike lanes? Is there a traffic-calmed area in the city? Are cyclists allowed to ride in pedestrian zones? Could I find a bike repair shop....

radeln für den regenwald

On our roadtrip we meet our son Niklas, on his charity-bike-tour through Europe: collecting money for the rainforest:  3000 € - 3000 km 3000 trees!

bike-tour from florence to naples

A little research on sustainable projects and bike-friendly travel along the "sun route" of the "Euro-Velo 7". The trip also has to do with my job: For climate education in schools, I work on projects that are intended to motivate students to deal with a climate-friendly lifestyle. Travel is definitely one of them!
