We aim to organise this event in accordance to the guidelines of the intern seal of approval "fairanstalten_mdw. weniger ist mehr" in order to contribute to resource conservation, climate protection, regional added value and raising awareness.

This is how you can support us in this endeavour:

  • Use public transportation, the bicycle or walk. The mdw is very centrally located and easy to reach with the U3, the S-Bahn or the tram line O. There are bicycle parking spaces and city bikes in front of the main building
  • Avoid rubbish in the best way possible and separate unavoidable rubbish on site according to the specifications of the waste management system
  • Use 100% recycled paper or at least non-chlorine bleached (TCF) paper for necessary printing
