SDG+ Lab: "Future store Re:Wir" opens in the Wilhelmshöhe district

On Friday, February 2, 2024, the "Zukunftsladen Re:Wir Wilhelmshöhe" will open at 3 pm in the City Center, directly at Wilhelmshöhe station. From February to March, the district store offers an extensive program on the topic of "Energy + Environment" on the premises of the former test center.

Committed citizens from the Bad Wilhelmshöhe district have developed the content in collaboration with staff from the University of Kassel. The event program offers, for example, energy consultations, film evenings, themed district walks, discussion forums on sustainable mobility in the district, open meetings of local sustainability initiatives, book swaps or the "coffee, mate, cell phone store" for young people. Anyone who is interested, young or old, with or without a connection to the district, is welcome to drop by the "Zukunftsladen Re:Wir" and help shape the future.

The Zukunftsladen continues to offer the opportunity to participate and expand the program. A current overview of the events can therefore be found on the website:

The Stadtteilladen is an open project for everyone. "We are delighted to have the opportunity to actively live a small utopia right here in the district. We are always on the lookout for people and initiatives who can imagine filling the district store with their wishes and inspirations that contribute to greater sustainability," says Anja Lipschik, local councillor and member of the initiative group in Wilhelmshöhe.

Further district stores are planned for March/April in Kirchditmold and May/June in Oberzwehren. Further points of contact are then to be set up in Waldau and Mitte.

The district stores are integrated into the SDG+ Lab at the University of Kassel. The project will be funded from 2023 to 2027 as part of the federal-state initiative "Innovative University". The name refers to the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In addition to the urban district stores as elements of the "SDG+ Experimentale", interested citizens can meet and participate in four other project modules. For the entire duration of the project, a converted store at Wilhelmsstrasse 21 will be available as an open event venue and meeting point with the urban community and also invites people to engage with sustainability issues. Opening hours of the SDG+ Lab at UNI:Lokal are Tuesday to Friday from 12-5pm and Saturday from 11am-3pm.
