„30 years of Tschernobyl – one thing is certain – the risk“
30 years have passed since the nuclear catastrophe at Tschernobyl and the consequences continue to the present day. Despite this the nuclear power lobby continues to plan and build new nuclear power stations.The effects are clearly measurable today. But what happened back then? How was it all possible? The exhibition „30 Years of Tschernobyl“ shows the events using an impressive series of photos and informative reading material. In addition GLOBAL 2000’s social project Tschernobyl’s Children which helps the youngest victims of Tschernobyl, will present its impressions. This workshop presents interactive elements on the subject of radioactivity and background information on the nuclear catastrophe in Tschernobyl, as well as showing its impact and connection to the Tschernobyl Project.
When: every morning, by appointment
Target group: school classes with pupils aged between 13 and 18 year.
On the theme „Fit for Nature“ and in addition to the exhibition „30 years of Tschernobyl“ there will be numerous theme workshops for children and adults such as „Food Waste“ or „Animals welcome in the garden“
„Food Waste“ Workshop by Global 2000, 1 hour
„Food Waste“ – food for the dustbin?“ –Did you know that a third of all food on the globe ends up in the dustbin? Or that the Viennese throw away on average food to the value of 300 to 400 € per person and year? At Christmas time especially large amounts of food are bought and a lot is eaten. Sometimes it is too much and some is thrown away. Supermarkets throw valuable food away and farmers cannot sell potatoes that are either too big, too small or uneven in shape. The workshop „Food Waste“ investigates this immense waste of resources in a playful and creative style and we learn some options for action on this subject.
„Animals welcome in the garden“ Workshop, 1 hour

With songs from fishermen, round dances, lullabies or love songs, Alb Bora is well appreciated all over the world. Often his music becomes groovy, when shepherd’s melodies are combined with dance music and party sounds.

Craftspeople for craftspeople
Most craftspeople are one man, one woman companies, who live solely from their own creativity. A lengthy period of illness or need of care may threaten their livelihoods. Divina art supports those members who are in difficulty through no fault of their own.
Vienna’s Red Cross backs the Art Market at Karlsplatz
The Art Market at Karlsplatz and Vienna’s Red Cross have been working together as a team for years now. Vienna’s Red Cross is a reliable partner when it comes to providing ambulance service when there are lots of visitors at weekends at Karlsplatz. „We are happy to not just look after the safety of the guests, but also to have our own booth and be part of the market family“, says Johannes Friedl, director of the ambulance services of Vienna’s Red Cross. „Members of our Red Cross family have created craft work in a joint project to be sold in our booth. The young and the old, those born in Vienna and those who have just arrived, these people have worked together under the motto: „for the love of mankind“.
