Imparting specific knowledge to children and young people on the subject of the energy transition is close to our hearts. 50Hertz and the “Unabhängiges Institut für Umweltfragen e. V.” (UfU) have therefore jointly developed an interactive exhibition, “Energie gemeinsam wenden” (Turning energy around together), which is used at various locations in the grid area. It playfully demonstrates to fifth and sixth grade pupils just how multifaceted the energy transition is. The interactive exhibition was awarded a prize by the German UNESCO Commission as a project of the UN Decade of “Education for Sustainable Development”. In 2017, around 850 pupils visited the interactive exhibitions.
In its grid area, 50Hertz funds selected projects that make our socioculture landscape even more multifaceted and eventful. In the context of the renowned “Artist in Residence” programme series at Konzerthaus Berlin, in 2017 we supported the organist Cameron Carpenter. The Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania Music Festival also values us as a reliable partner.
In 2017, 50Hertz got involved time and time again in numerous initiatives, associations and organisations. These included, among other things, the “Rennsteig Autumn Run” in the Thuringian Forest, DRK Kreisverband Güstrow, Heimatverein Röhrsdorf and Fischereiwirtschaft Rostock. We supported the young volleyball talents of VFB 91 Suhl e. V. as well as the young biathletes of SV Schorfheide Groß Schönebeck e. V.
