Warning, garbage monster alert!
Sometimes they’re really big, sometimes tiny. We encounter them everywhere in everyday life, at home, on the street, in nature or even in places where we do not expect them. Garbage accompanies us like a steadily growing monster. It makes you sick and harms the environment.
But when do things become garbage? And how do you get rid of the monsters?
The interactive exhibition for children and families uses examples from the world of visitors, starting in the kitchen. What problems does garbage pose and how is it disposed of? It is thematized which routes garbage takes and which technology, logistics and effort are also required for recycling.
Dealing with garbage is socially relevant and has to do with responsibility – in the family, in the community, for the planet. Hands-on stations playfully create sensual access to the topic. The questions addressed are how garbage was dealt with in the past, what the major and minor consequences are, or how it will and should continue to accompany us in the future. The goal is less rubbish! Therefore, topics such as sustainability, upcycling or repairing things should not be missing in the exhibition.
