Munich Volunteers cleaning river
For the third time, volunteers from New Acropolis Munich, carried out the cleaning of a brook in the North of Munich, which in recent years had accumulated trash fostering a sick ecosystem.

Volunteers pulled out of the channel items including barbed wire, a rusty fence,  several sharp metal plates which prevented the natural flow of the water.

This clean-up was a good experience and an enjoyment for all to recover the natural atmosphere of nature; to give something to nature and not just consume.

RetoricaAs a final test, students had to expose in public “what is philosophy today”, with a spontaneous reflection of their arguments and no written support. They also needed to control body expression and most remarkably, convey their ideas to the audience.

They effectively managed, sometimes with drastic examples or humorous comments,  to show that philosophy is a good way to live life and serving “to rebuild the bridges destroyed by anger, hatred, and envy”.

At the end of the ceremony, they received from the Director of New Acropolis Germany, Gudrun Gutdeutsch, the document which certifies that, after months of intense work, they successfully completed their Rhetoric Course.

Munich new stream parenthhod

After successfully terminating a 10-year stream ‘adoption’, volunteers of New Acropolis Munich began a new project in collaboration with the city council.

On a hot summer day volunteers waded through stream waters, taking out deadwood, garbage and a rusted fence, all of which were blocking the flow. Obviously, nobody had cared about this stream for years.

Neighbors expressed their appreciation by offering the volunteers some of their home-grown vegetables, and the owner of a nearby powerhouse supported this initiative with tools and catering.

After a day of intense work, the waters started to flow more vividly, and the stream became clearer. Yet, more cleaning and care is necessary, and the volunteers naturally promised to return and continue their work….
