60 ha. Dead or Alive?
How big is 60 hectares or 80 football fields?
|Each day in Germany 120 hectares of green land is being paved over. In the whole of Germany it is 120 hectares a day being lost.|
ART at WORK is conceptualising and initiating projects that help raise awareness of such life threatening issues through a “hands on” interactive approach.
The project’s goal was to bring people together to experience how big is an area of 60 hectares.
All the materials and expert advice was available for people to construct their own “developerscarer”: an earth spirit figure to set into the earth to help protect it. Many families and individuals did so, setting them in the landscape. A forum for experts was also created with info stands for local flora and fauna data.
