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.
