Environmental rally through Hamburg

On the Hamburg Environment Rallye in the EntdeckerRouten App, you can thus find out some exciting information about the environment and sustainability. What problems are you confronted with today and what could be possible solutions? Where is global warming felt and what influence does Hamburg have on these issues?

We would like to give you a brief insight into four of the eleven exciting stations of the environmental rally. At each of the route points, the EntdeckerRouten App gives you useful tips on what you can do or contribute yourself. You can find the complete 2.5 kilometre route here.

Avoiding plastic waste

Plastic can be found in many products: In packaging, as cutlery but also in shower gel or cosmetics. Did you know that there are countless small microplastic particles in water? Especially in the sea, waves and salt water break plastic down into smaller and smaller pieces. As a result, sea creatures that eat these particles are contaminated with harmful substances. In Hamburg, for example, you can buy completely plastic-free in some shops. Many shops also offer environmentally friendly cosmetics, which not only do without microplastics, but are also packed with other materials.

Sustainable Mobility

A city without traffic noise, without exhaust fumes, without traffic jams: the "mobility of the future" can take many forms. Where cars still drive today, there could soon be cycle paths and pedestrian zones. Since a high proportion of CO2 emissions is produced when travelling, it is even better to switch to climate-friendly mobility! In Hamburg there are already a number of possibilities for this: For example, you can explore the city on two wheels. This is particularly easy and CO2 neutral on city bikes. But the "mobility of the future" is also heralded by the HVV, car sharing or electric taxis.

Saving Energy

In Hamburg, 60 percent of the electricity is already generated in an environmentally friendly way. You hardly know Hamburg without a stiff breeze, and that is precisely why most of the regional green electricity is produced from wind. The numerous wind power stations in and around Hamburg can convert 50 percent of wind energy into mechanical energy and generate up to 90 times more energy than was used for production and construction.
