Rathaus- and Schönbrunn- Christmas tree

Christmas is over, the New Year has only just started and the question is what will happen to the old Christmas trees? Not only are Christmas trees removed from Vienna’s households, but also the Christmas trees of Rathaus and Schönbrunn were taken down. The foresters of the city of Vienna again make something useful out of the wood: The Rathaus-Christmas tree is processed to insect hotels. About 10 bees’ hotels will be placed in the Vienna wood, in Lobau and in Lainzer zoo! Above all wild bees, ladybirds and several wasps should find the optimal habitat there! The Schönbrunn Christmas tree was fed to the elephants, giraffes and rhinoceroses of Schönbrunn zoo last monday. The Christmas tree certainly is a welcome green snack for the animals!

Cleaning Vienna

It is the 7th time that this event is taking place. This year’s spring-cleaning started on April 23rd and will be on until the 8th of May 2012. It is an event of the city government, supported by the local municipal authorities and a lot of private initiatives. Last year over 300 initiatives, schools, kindergartens, clubs and individuals (in total more than 11,600 citizens) took part and helped to clean our city. Making people aware of how much waste they produce and how many people do not care to throw them out in proper bins, but rather place them anywhere in the streets. Initiatives are equipped with rubbish bags and gloves by the local authorities and the waste that was collected will be picked up and separated properly. Vienna will even be cleaned under water. 100 divers will clean the Danube on the 28h of May. What a great initiative!

Earth Hour 2012 – March 31st, 8:30pm

“It started out with an idea, an idea that became a symbol, a symbol that became a movement, a movement that unites our planet” (Earth Hour 2012) Earth Hour once began in 2007 in Sydney, where more than 2 million people and more than 2000 businesses switched off their lights for one hour to show that they care for our planet. The plan for 2008 was to extend this event to the rest of Australia, but in this action had become so popular that more than 35 countries joined in. Doing something, not just talking about it, is the main drive behind it. Last year 135 countries and more than 5000 cities and towns participated and united to make a difference. The event is organized by the WWF. Earth hour 2012 will take place on March 31st, from 8:30 to 9:30 pm. This year’s theme is “I will if you will”. On youtube many examples are showcased of people who commit to something if certain goals of long term actions to save our planet and stop climate change are realized. … and what will you do?
