Having strong partnerships is essential to us. We partner up with other organisations to provide funding and visibility to promising ideas, create synergies with other activities in Bonn and scale up our impact.
Below you can find short descriptions of selected projects we conducted in partnership with other organisations. If you are interested in partnering with us, we would love to hear from you!
Our special thanks goes to the following partners and sponsors:
“Sprachgarten”: Language Café meets urban gardening
The central idea of the project was to bring together the components of language café (learning German) and urban gardening. The connecting element was the integration of the neighbourhood and especially the international community of Tannenbusch and Bonn. The language café quickly established itself as a stable and regular format in the Tannenbusch Haus. In the context of urban gardening, we held various workshops.
Our personal highlights were
developing the language café format and seeing the great resonance for it. Often more than 20 people came together voluntarily to learn German in a relaxed and at the same time concentrated atmosphere. This is also a great credit to the leader, Manfred Gerads.
our new aquaponics system, which also made it into the “Sendung mit der Maus”. Really!
The various parts of the project were funded by both the Bonner Spendenparlament and the House of Resources Bonn.
Gardening for Future with Respect Earth e.V.
The project is a collaboration between Respect Earth e.V. and Tannenbusch House. Jointly, we develop ideas for a positive, just and conscious coexistence between humans and nature in an urban context. And we put these ideas into practice.
Respect Earth is a non-profit association with the purpose to promote respect for our earth. And this especially through concrete activities of nature and climate protection.
The Tannenbusch House provides both the garden and basic infrastructure to put the project into action.
The SDG Learning Journey was planned as a series of three thematic workshops as well as a closing event taking place at the Tannenbusch House in 2020. Our aim was to take concrete action, make existing commitment visible and connect established organisations with young & motivated people.
The participants of our “learning journey” received practical methods and relevant knowledge from experts in order to develop projects and shape social change in their environment. Furthermore, we provided access to a physical space, access to an international and thriving community and the opportunity to pitch your project or idea.
Due to the global pandemic, we were only able to host two thematic workshops on the topics of “Good Health & Wellbeing” (SDG 3) and “Urban Gardening”. We hope to repeat our planned (and readily designed) workshop on Gender Equality as well as the SDG Standup soon.
The SDG Learning Journey was made possible by financial support from the Federal City of Bonn.
