Communication projects by the Council
By realising own communication projects the German Council for Sustainable Development aims to invite a broader public to deal with the issue of sustainable development in a creative way.
The German Council for Sustainable Development (RNE) has developed a "Werkstatt N" quality label which will, in future, be awarded every year to 100 projects and project drafts from up and down the country. To this end, the Council bestowed its first "Werkstatt N" quality label awards on 45 projects and project drafts for a sustainable Germany during its annual conference which was held in Berlin on 27 September 2010. In the opinion of the Council, the people behind the initiatives demonstrate both resourcefulness and commitment in their approach to showing how sustainability ideas can be turned into deeds and added value for the benefit of society.

Only when every single person orientates her every day behaviour on criterias of sustainability, things will really change. Besides the description of the idea and the planned change of action in every day life the participants are asked to present their idea in a graphical way. More
How do people who care about sustainability look like? This was the question of this year’s annual communication project of the German Council for Sustainable Development. Every participant could take part with photos of a friend who works for human rights, or the neighbour who works on an organic farmyard, the professor who carried out exciting research projects on relevant topics or the politician who takes the fight against poverty and the protection of the environment seriously even when it is not the run-up to an election.

What do we eat, by what means do we move about, how do we spend our spare time? – Quite simple observations speak volumes about sustainability in our private day-to-day life. A national film competition, which the Sustainability Council initiated, was to sharpen sensibility both with young people and with senior citizens for the treatment nature and energy and for our own mobility and recreation behaviour.

How do you advertise for a sustainable world and get to the heart of sustainability? Draw our attention to what is important for you: show us what today’s world needs to exist tomorrow.

The Council for Sustainable Development, together with young people, developed a book "Young people write about the future" that accompanied the German government on its way to Johannesburg to the World Summit for Sustainable Development in summer 2002. Within the framework of a national creative writing competition, numerous youth groups had applied for participation in the writing workshops of the Sustainability Council’s book project. Unfortunately, not every contestant could be taken into consideration. More
