Rhine-Neckar District adventure tour: From the river to the sea – the path of our waste

To what extent does marine protection begin in local rivers? What special challenges does the biodiversity of river landscapes face? And what does our behavior have to do with it?

As part of a kayak tour on the Elsenz, the major challenges of the global sustainability goals become clear on the small river: water pollution, loss of biodiversity and the effect of climate change on the world's oceans. We also learn more about why the sea is a source of life and where this basis of life is threatened by overfishing. During the sporty tour there will also be a guided voluntary “clean-up” of the river bank, during which rubbish from nature is collected.

The following sustainability goal will be examined in more detail during this tour: SDG 14 – Life Below Water

Start and end of the tour: Mühle Kolb Adventure Center, Mühlweg 9, 74939 Zuzenhausen, www.erlebniszentrum-muehlekolb.de
Duration: around four hours (around two hours of pure paddling time)
Cost: 15 euros per person, including kayak rental and equipment and bus transport to Sinsheim. The amount is to be paid on site.

The tour is aimed at adults and children aged 12 and over (only when accompanied by an adult). Paddling is done in two-person kayaks. Please dress appropriately for the weather and for water sports and bring your own food. After the tour has ended, you can stop off at the Kolb mill.

You can register for the tour by email to: info@muehlekolb.de

Background: 17 destination tours for sustainability – global.local.experience
The United Nations' Agenda 2030 with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) forms the framework for the global realization of a future-proof and sustainable society. In the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region, seven adventure tours are offered on foot, by bike or on the water. Specially trained tour guides show the global connections on site and give suggestions on how the 17 goals can be achieved.

The “global.local.experience” tours are an offer from the Development-Related Education in Germany (EBD) program run by Engagement Global in cooperation with the Rhine-Neckar Region Association.

1979 revolution in Nicaragua - back then the beginning of a dream for many leftists and today?

A dream of revolution, documentary, 95 minutes written and directed by Petra Hoffmann
When the revolution triumphed in Nicaragua almost 45 years ago, a dream began. A young generation takes over the government in a country of great utopia. From West Germany alone, 15.000 “Brigadists” are coming to rebuild the country that has been bled dry: Liberals, Greens, trade unionists, social democrats, leftists and church representatives harvest coffee and cotton, build schools, kindergartens and sick stations. No movement has mobilized so many people. What happened to the wishes and dreams of revolutionaries and their supporters? In 2018, an uprising against the former revolutionary hero and current President Ortega was bloodily suppressed.
With her film “A Dream of Revolution,” director Petra Hoffmann provides insight into the history of Nicaragua and from the fight against the dictator Somoza to the present day. She herself went to Nicaragua in the 1980s as a brigadier to support the population in their fight against the dictator Somoza.
For her film, she uses historical film clips, statements from those involved in the process, such as the writer Giocanda Belli, whose Nicaraguan citizenship was revoked from Ortega in 2023, but also statements from former comrades in arms from Europe with whom she met in Costa Rica the border with Nicaragua.
How did the activists at the time deal with the fact that the “dream of revolution” was shattered? But also: how should the current political situation be assessed and what influence and support options are there? Also for non-governmental organizations?
The director Petra Hoffmann will be available for a discussion after the film.

Municipal specialist conference

Images – Opinions – Perspectives – Creating lively municipal partnerships

This year's municipal expert forum organized by the Association of Baden-Württemberg Cities and the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation focuses on the upcoming local elections and their importance for global partnerships. In light of the increasing polarization of political and social discourse, narratives critical of partnerships are gaining strength. The focus of the municipal expert forum is therefore the question: How can and must global partnerships be argued in the local political context in order to continue to exist in the future?

Speakers:NN

Registration: until March 27, 2024 via the following link: https://eveeno.com/742914243

With the admission ticket you have the opportunity to visit the Fair Trade trade fair after the event.
