Cycling for the climate

It's time again to start a bike tour in summer! In cooperation with Hochschulsport, we are offering you a relaxed bike tour on a scenic route on the Corpus Christi holiday. We will cycle from our home in Cologne towards Bonn along the beautiful Rhine. We will cycle there and back together.

We start in the KHG building with a crisp keynote by Tobi Rosswog, initiator and activist of "cycling the change", who joins us live and shares interesting insights on how each of us can become active to advance the traffic turnaround. He is currently in the VW car city of Wolfsburg, where he is turning it into a traffic change city together with workers Verkehrswendestadt .

Then we head directly south towards the banks of the Rhine. After a short ferry crossing, we will enjoy a picnic on the beach at lunchtime, during which we will consciously take in our surroundings and receive a small impulse on the topic of environmental perception.

If you don't have your own bike, we can provide you with one. The tour will be accompanied by two instructors who know the area. In case your bike breaks down, a member of the bicycle repair shop will also be there. 

The tour only takes place in good weather. We need the deposit for the planning. This deposit will be refunded immediately after the tour or in case of cancellation due to weather conditions. We are looking forward to your active participation.

Deadline for registration is Thursday, 25th May 2023 !

Meeting point: KHG 10.00 pm

Deposit: 30 Euro für alle, die kein eigenes Fahrrad haben (wird nach der Tour zurückgezahlt)

Registration: Now only possible with your own bike. Please just register below until 7th June.

Nachtcafé Gubbio

Overnight project for the homeless

In collaboration with the Gubbio Homeless Chaplaincy

You may also notice the many homeless people in our streets. In Cologne, there are only limited overnight accommodations for homeless people. We are therefore supporting Gemeinsam Gubbio at the Nachcafé in the current winter semester. A warm invitation to all: anyone and everyone can join in! 

Interested parties can now contact Annekatrin Schumacher to get an idea of the task for themselves based on experiences and impressions from the past years. 

Participation in the night café can be recognised for the church practice field within the framework of the study certificate. 

The entry is possible at any time within the winter season from November to March. We are looking forward to your support !

Fair-Teiler

Save and share food

At the KHG, we would like to do something together with you against throwing away food and have set up a system for collecting and handing out food, the so-called FairTeiler, which was later taken over by Foodsharing.

This is a permanently installed cupboard and fridge where you can deposit and collect food during our opening hours.

Both are clearly visible directly in the entrance area of our building (Berrenrather Str. 127) and are open to all people who would like to use them as an offer for food sharing. We would be happy to have committed helpers who would join us in keeping the cupboard clean.

Please contact us at: sekretariat@khgkoeln.de

If you want to find out more about the idea of the FoodSharing, you can read more here.
