What is this commitment about?
Our beaches say a lot about the state of the sea. Thus, it is extremely valuable for research to get impressions of washed up things from our beaches.
What are 5-Minute Commitments?
With our 5-Minute Commitments, we want to inspire you to easily integrate commitment into your everyday life. They are independent of non-profit organizations and allow you to individually engage with people and nature in your neighborhood.
You can help identify items on our beaches. To do this, all you have to do is keep an eye out for everything you find there during your next visit at the beach. You can then report your findings to Beach Explorer. Here, you can also find an identification guide in order for beginners to report findings as well.
No special prerequisites are needed for this 5 minute commitment.
You can easily become a beach explorer on your vacation at the beach. Of course, if you live near a beach, you can do it even more often.
This project is location independent.
We are a social enterprise from Berlin with a big dream: We want a world in which everyone contributes to a better and more sustainable future according to their possibilities and regardless of time budget, language or previous knowledge. For this purpose, we gather on vostel.de numerous engagement offers from non-profit organizations that are looking for volunteers. By doing this, we show concrete possibilities for action in order to become socially active and would like to motivate above all the younger generations to get involved for a better world.More about the organisation
