Lovis Willenberg, one of the market's organizers, calls Heldenmarkt "a market that matters. We address issues like resource consumption and social inequalities. How can I recognize a good green electricity provider? What advantages do sustainable banks carry? How can I profit from 'car sharing'?"
Numerous lectures and workshops will revolve around these and other themes, with a presentation called "Who will catch the last fish? How consumers can support sustainable fishing" taking place on Saturday at 1.30 p.m. by Christina Müller of Greenpeace, a vegan cooking show hosted by Björn Moschinski of Kopps vegan Restaurant on Sunday, several raffles on both days, and many more events.
Heldenmarkt started out three years ago as a one-man-enterprise and has since then turned into a company with several employees that plans Heldenmarkt events in Berlin, Stuttgart, and soon, Munich and Bochum. "We want everyone to enjoy themselves!" says Lovis.
