The stations of the expedition
Together citizens find the answers
There is a variety of organizations and projects in every region active in different ways. They tackle the question how the action of an individual can contribute to the protection of the environment and natural resources, to collaborative cooperation and especially to a lively culture of participation.
The aim is to work out what specific regional characteristics are associated with the term “sustainability” and can be strengthened as local sustainable action. By linking the individual stations each of the following will benefit from the previous stations. It should become clear that sustainability is based on the combination of local actions and Europe-wide, intergenerational thinking.
At the stations a 3-day interactive event (urban trail, discourses, arts & culture event) is performed in the course of one week each. Artists, professionals and people of all ages are gathering how action is already sustainable on regional level and how every individual contributes. This is surrounded by a kick-off event with representatives of city/government, projects/organizations, the business community and a common final party.
These cities and regions are headed for:

Editing results in the mobile academy
During the cruise to the next station the results of the visits will be documented and edited by the crew (accompanying scientists, artists, craftsmen, etc.) and presented in a way that knowledge is transformed into art, transported on art and thus education can be provided.
A central point is the participation of local actors combined with an effective participation of people in development processes. The principle of developing partnerships with local initiatives, organisations, sustainably operating companies and the communities as well as the creation of learning and knowledge interfaces are the core strategic points.
