Global Neighborhood Day 2021 in Remagen

On 28th May 2021, the city administration of Remagen and the project team of GreenErasmus-RheinAhrCampus had the chance to celebrate the Green Global Neighborhood Day and together, contribute to a greener world.

Within the event, the GreenErasmus-RheinAhrCampus Team of international students organized a workshop on "How to build a Bee Hotel", which is important nowadays not only for solitary bees but all wild insects for wintering during the times of climate change and ecologicla imbalance. With this action, we aimed to make the garden of our university eco-friendlier and bring new sustainable practice to our neighborhood in Remagen. 

Green Global Neighborhood Day brought the citizens of Remagen, families, students and showed each of them how important it is to be connected to the neighbors locally and work hand-to-hand on the achievement of a common goal. Only together, we can make a difference and create a greener, more beautiful and peaceful world starting with our own neighborhood. It was inspiring how everyone, despite age and cultural differences, could contribute – kids, parents, kindergarten teachers, youth and seniors were planting flowers all over the neighborhood, while university students from all over the world were delivering the workshop how to build insect hotels.

Global improvements can start with making even small changes on the local level. On Green Global Neighborhood we discovered green culture and exchanged sustainable practices that are going to be shared further globally!
