On the road with Rahel

Rahel Klein travels through Germany for the Goethe-Institut and shows how people make their cities more livable.

Fresh air, clean drinking water, a park nearby, nice neighbours. People who are there for each other and who show consideration for each other. That’s what the Germans want in their cities. What do they do for it? And what are the problems? Rahel Klein visits cities in Germany for you – and shows how people are committed to making them a better place to live.

In Cologne she meets Tine, who is active in “Foodsharing”. Tine is committed to reducing the amount of food that ends up in the bin. Then Rahel visits a repair café and talks to Dunja, the organiser. (In German only)
In the German capital Berlin Rahel vistis the Prinzessinnengärten (i.e. princess gardens), a community garden in the middle of Kreuzberg, where Berliners grow vegetables together. Afterwards she meets Anne from the “Sozialhelden” (in German only)).
