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!

The first of May Festival

Each year on the first of May, the large May-festival takes place in Prater to celebrate our national holiday. There will be various attractions in both, the entertainment area of Prater, as well as the “green”, “park” area of Prater. Most of the attractions in the amusement park will offer a 25% discount, there will be a large sports programme for children, but also a lot of (inter)national musicians and live acts. 3 stages will offer live entertainment starting at 1pm until 11pm. At 10pm you will be able to enjoy the traditional fireworks! Of course there will be various stands selling food, drinks and souvenirs, clothes … If the weather is nice, you can also simply bring a blanket along and enjoy a picnic in the park or a nice afternoon sleep in the sun! Have fun in Prater and enjoy the first of May!!!   photo source: http://www.mediafreedom.at/foto/photovision/4849

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?
