Bremerhaven    3rd LL Workshop "Edible City" , Goethe-Quartier


In April 2023, the CITIES2030 Living Lab on the topic of "Edible cities - how we can produce our own food" took place in Bremerhaven's Goethequartier. Together, we looked at how we can grow herbs, vegetables and fruit in public green spaces, on street islands, in backyards, front gardens, on roofs, balconies and unused fallow land, for example, and thus create productive and sustainable places in our city. The "Leher Pergolinchen" has been standing in the Goethequartier since last autumn and also invites people to join in.

Bremerhaven   LL Experiment "local bread for local kids" Internship days at a school     

28. - 30.06.2023               

The development of a regional food system has many facets and thrives on visionary ideas and creative solutions. One such innovation is a bread mix that has emerged from an experiment conducted by the cities2030 Bremerhaven project team with ATLANTIC Hotel Sail City, a bremerhaven based hotel with sustainable ambitions.

The project team attaches great value to transparency in the origin of the raw materials and enters into a dialogue with young people about regionality, climate protection, local added value and tasty food.

In collaboration with pupils from the Lloyd Gymnasium school in Bremerhaven, the project team tested and refined a bread mix with just regional ingredients and took a close look at the opportunities and challenges involved in establishing a regional supply chain. Because the more we know about the origin of raw materials, the greater is the understanding and appreciation of local products.
