The largest open air festival ever to be held in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) took place in Düsseldorf, the state’s capital city, along the bank of the Rhine during the last weekend in August. Covering 56,000 square metres and lasting three days, this public event had been organised to celebrate NRW’s 70th birthday and was officially opened by Minister President Hannelore Kraft and Thomas Geisel, Lord Mayor of Düsseldorf, on the Friday evening.
A vibrant programme of events was on offer on both the Saturday (until 11pm) and the Sunday (until 7pm) for all those visiting the festival. A whole variety of stands and tents had been set up along the Rhine to celebrate the state’s 70th birthday – run by state and local institutions as well as clubs, associations, companies and organisations from a wide range of areas and from right across North Rhine-Westphalia.
Collaborating with AWISTA – der Gesellschaft für Abfallwirtschaft und Stadtreinigung mbH, REMONDIS also travelled to the event with its RECYCLING PROFESSIONALS. Having set up their tent, THE REMONDIS RECYCLING PROFESSIONALS continued their ‘mission to save our planet’s raw materials’ providing an attractive and highly popular two-day programme for children, families and anyone else interested in learning more about the environment and recycling. With its entertaining mixture of games, creative workshops and infotainment, the team of experienced teaching specialists showed which recyclables belong in which bin and explained why it is so important to separate waste materials from one another. THE RECYCLING PROFESSIONALS made the visitors – both young and old – more aware of these subjects by giving them creative tasks to do, puzzles to solve and organising games. Not only the children were able to find out why separating waste is so important but adults were also given the opportunity to ask any questions they had about raw material shortages and recycling.
