Steinbeis project at vocational college in Sinsheim
The Steinbeis Innovation Center for Logistics and Sustainability has been recognized for the second time for its “Where Education and Sustainability Meet” initiative under a German UNESCO competition that highlights “Ideas for Future Initiatives” in cooperation with the drugstore chain dm. As part of the competition, the project partners are supporting the UN decade of “Education for Sustainable Development.”
The project was organized by the Steinbeis Innovation Center with the Max Weber Vocational College from Sinsheim. The aim was to look at a wide variety of activities relating to sustainability, from an LED project to a bamboo umbrella and recycled PET bottles. The young inventors presented the results of their projects to shoppers in a local dm store which supported the project by collecting € 800 of sponsorship money at the tills. “The ‘Where Education and Sustainability Meet’ initiative is making an important contribution to the development of skills amongst young people, especially in environmental, commercial and social areas,” states JensJochen Roth, head of the Sinsheim-based Steinbeis Innovation Center.
