【DE】IGW Update Day 6

Startup days, student press conference and young farmers from North Rhine-Westphalia behind the stove – Day 6 of Green Week is dedicated to the “young savages”. At the ErlebnisBauernhof in Hall 3.2, young companies from Germany will present their ideas for the food industry and agriculture of tomorrow. At 6 p.m., the best startup will be chosen. At the student press conference, students from the region ask questions from the fields of agriculture and food and the young farmers exchange stable and field for show kitchen and conjure up Westphalian specialties in Hall 5.2.


number of the day

Visitors are around 7.5 kilometers on the road if they want to stop by all 25 halls of the Green Week.


Together for the forest of the future

In Hall 27, the German forestry has set up half a dozen stations to participate in. Not only children learn a lot about wood and climate change here. Tree trunk after tree trunk picks up Ferdinand with the gripper pliers, pans them over the basket in front of his machine and invites them there. All virtual, of course. The 24-year-old sits in a so-called harvester simulator, has VR glasses in mind, both hands highly concentrated at the switches. CONTINUE READING

Ice connects continents

A Finnish-Argentine love story forms the basis for the ice cream manufacturer Caminito Oy, which premieres this year at the International Green Week. The vegan strawberry ice cream tastes delicious, soft as soft ice cream and extremely fruity. “The key is to use enough fruit,” explains Sari Laasko, Quality Manager of the Finnish ice cream manufacturer Caminito Oy. 25% pure strawberry is included in the ice cream.CONTINUE READING


Lucky fish between hot dog wraps and crocodile goulash

The street food market in Hall 1.2a invites you to feast, experiment and relax. The Eichmann family is almost part of the inventory with their lucky fish. Jingmei Fan-Eichmann radiates a meditative serenity. In the midst of the hustle and bustle on the street food market of the International Green Week, between knuckle burgers, Hungarian Langosch and sandwich raclette, the Potsdamer from China repeats the same activity. CONTINUE READING


Forest bathing in the hustle and bustle of the fair

The stand of the Federal Ministry for the Environment brings ecological habitats closer to small and large guests and explains their benefits for the climate. Does this cry come from a bird? Is it a seal? Anyone who participates in the wildlife quiz at the stand of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) in Hall 27 must rely entirely on their hearing. A painted map provides clues to the habitats of the sought-after birds and mammals. CONTINUE READING

One boat more beautiful than the other

In hall 8.2, Norway advertises itself with fine appetizers, fresh cider and traditional products in a new design. Vegans have a hard time here. Everyone else should plan their trip to Norway in Hall 8.2 well. There are too many delicacies here, hot dishes, cold appetizers, much for a trial price of two or three euros, plus aquavit or apple juice, cider, gin or an honest beer. Everything from Norwegian production, of course.CONTINUE READING

Super fruits from Sri Lanka

The island in the Indian Ocean can do more than cinnamon and tea. Their fruits keep you healthy and even serve as a basis for meat substitutes. For Ranjan T. Hanchapola, the matter is clear: Graviola is the new super fruit. The fruit of the spiny cannon (looks a bit like a green pineapple without a crown of leaves) actually comes from South America and is widespread in Africa. But it also grows wonderfully in the tropical climate of Sri Lanka. Read more
