Meet & Clean-up
Together with Nanami, a student from Japan, we are hosting a get-to-know and cleanup event at the Hiroshima Nagasaki Park near the Aachener Weiher. Everybody – local or international – is welcome.
Zeit & Ort
30. Okt. 2022, 14:00 – 16:00
Köln, Universitätsstraße 22a, 50923 Köln, Deutschland
Nanami came to Cologne this semester to study. As one of the the first places she visied the Hiroshima Nagasaki Park. She was surprised how littered the place is, it was a little culture shock for her.
She came up with the idea to combine two ideas: On the one hand to clean up the trash as a volunteer experience and at the same time to get to know new people who might also be new to Cologne.
We support this idea and organized this event with her.
When and where?
Come to our station at the Hiroshima Nagasaki Park (near the Aacher Weiher) starting at 2 pm. You'll recognize us by the handcart and flag.
Find a partner and gather together in the park. Feel free to switch teams in between to get to know each other.
Please return the collected garbage to the distribution point by 4 pm at the latest.
Garbage bags and gloves are provided free of charge. Grapple tongs and garbage bag holders can be borrowed for a deposit. We hand out small containers for cigarette butts and crown caps.
If you want, you can focus on one type of waste. We collect cigarette butts and crown caps separately. Especially for children, collecting crown caps is a varied and safe way to participate.
In the event of heavy rain/storms, the trash collection event will be cancelled.
