On the occasion of the World Wildlife Day on March 3, the university members of Greenpeace Ilmenau cordially invite you to the action day "Wild Meadow" starting at 4:30 pm.

Together with all interested and committed people, they want to take care of the insect hotel on the meadow behind the University Computer Center and clear branches from the meadow area so that it can blossom in spring: "We want it to hum and buzz in 2023 and want to make our Wild Meadow fit for spring," says Katharina Peh, a staff member at the Department of Technical Physics.

During a joint picnic, she and the other members of Greenpeace Ilmenau will provide information on how to plant windowsills, balconies or gardens in the most insect-friendly way possible.

Those who wish to participate should be dressed appropriately, depending on the weather. The work will be adapted according to the weather. Seating is not yet available on the lawn. If possible, no disposable packaging should be brought along for the meal.
