We promote our district

Lernen in Langenhorn

With our local funding line "Learning in Langenhorn", we finance educational projects on site in the district of our foundation headquarters.

Schüler:innen und Lehrkräfte pflegen gemeinsam den Schulgarten

Free Day

Since spring break, the Eberhofweg school in Hamburg's Langenhorn district has been offering "Frei Day" for 1a and 1c. For the children, this means that every second Friday they experience nature outside with their teachers and the environmental educator Lore Otto and are encouraged to curiously explore life.

The "Frei Day" is a format in the field of ESD and stands for "Education for Sustainable Development". What is meant is an education that enables people to think and act in a way that is fit for the future. Often this form of education is not offered in school, this is where the promotion takes effect.
