German Sustainability Activity Days 2015

WE MOVE.SUSTAINABILITY.WORLDWIDE. This was GIZ’s motto, as it ‘moved’ sustainability once round the globe.

Between 30 May and 5 June, a large number of GIZ staff worldwide were once again involved in the German Sustainability Activity Days organised by the German Council for Sustainable Development.

German Sustainability Activity Days 2015

A total of 45 separate activities were organised, focusing on exercise, health and mobility. The ideas ranged from a ‘bike to work’ initiative in Namibia to a mountain hike in Pakistan and a delicious lunch using lots of local ingredients in Bolivia.

Almost twice as many GIZ activities were held compared with 2013. GIZ drew inspiration from the very different interpretations of the motto that emerged around the globe, and encouraged discussion among colleagues. The enthusiastic participation shows that GIZ not only ‘moves’ sustainability in its projects and programmes around the world, but also within the company itself.

All inputs are presented on the website of the German Council for Sustainable Development.
