3D printing your own replacement parts? How does that work? We want to answer this question and even plan on doing one or two 3D repairs on the spot. Do you hope to repair one of your own broken devices using a 3D printer? Then bring it along with you and together we will determine if it is a good candidate for a 3D repair. And we’ll answer questions like: How do I get it into my computer? And out of the printer? If you are interested, just send a picture of the device you want to repair prior to the workshop to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What does design have to do with sustainability? And what can design be? How can it be used to create a positive feeling for the future and ignite the creative will within us?
Let us listen, talk and RAUSCH!
We have invited experts to give us deeper insights into their worlds: Whether it’s scientists or web developers, street artists or fashion designers: The future is being fine-tuned, printed and coded. Nature is providing material; the recycling of which is being carefully considered. The Internet is being measured in CO2, and statements are being made with pen and paper. We will get creative and conjure visions in people’s minds!
Come and let yourself be inspired, get involved – and take a good helping of it with you when you go.
Be sure to register for the workshops on time; many have a limited capacity. Registration opens at the end of July, so make sure you remember to come back then to sign up!
Notice: We reserve the right to make any changes due to the corona pandemic and/or any other unforeseen challenges.

Friday 28.8.2020 – VERNISSAGE
ökoRAUSCH Exhibition for design & sustainability
Saturday 5.9.2020 – Design for the future
Saving resources with design
To kick off our programme we will be going back to the basics: Which material do we use in design in order to truly save resources? Will we soon be growing products themselves? And what are we building upon for our tomorrow? Our experts will put you in a RAUSCH with the world of possibilities.
Moderation: Kim Huber, ökoRAUSCH
Sunday 6.9.2020 – City design – Part 1
Creatively using (city) spaces
The majority of the world’s population lives in cities and urban agglomerations. Should this really be answered with a construction boom and real estate as a financial investment? How can we instead – together as a community – re-design cities to become communal, inclusive places with a better quality of life for all of its citizens!
Moderation: Rainer Kiel
Thursday 10.9.2020 – City design – Part 2
Creatively using (city) spaces
The city’s buildings are the canvass of street artists. What impact can political art in public spaces have? Look, listen, ask and join the discussion.
Moderation: Captain Borderline
Saturday 12.09.2020 – Coding for climate – Part 1
Digitalisation and sustainability
The Internet and digitalisation are a part of our everyday lives and communication, making them easier; they stand for efficiency and dematerialisation. But what is the carbon footprint of the virtual space? Shouldn’t we measure our digital activity by more than just bits, bytes, shares and likes and also consider rare earths, emissions and ethics? While the Internet will be subject to critique here, we will also brainstorm how clever codes can be the beginning of a more environmentally friendly Internet!
Moderation: Kathrin Prassel
Sunday 13.9.2020 – Democracy theatre
Performative input on positive utopias for democracy and politics, on new societal models and visionary alternative life designs.
Thursday 17.9.2020 – New talents for Craftmanship
Your creative Fingerprint
A Workshop by CREATIVE.NRW. Everybody is talking about the ecological footprint. The artist Manfred Webel from Paderborn asks: “What can our hands contribute to a social and nature-friendly future?“
Thursday 17.9.2020 – Less is more
Concepts for new ways of working did not fist arise during the corona crisis. We Germans are the world champions of productivity, but out of love for the environment and nature, we shouldn’t overdo it. People’s psyche and individual life satisfaction often suffer from it. So how can we work more sustainably?
Moderation: Kim Huber, ökoRAUSCH
Friday 18.9.2020 – Make a statement
For a healthy environment (in Cologne)
Today we are making a statement: With pen and paper in hand, we are going to explore the basics of graphic recordings; but with moxie, vision and direct democracy we will also be setting the tone for a transformation toward a climate-neutral Cologne.
Saturday 19.9.2020 – Coding for climate – Part 2
Do it yourself
A crash course for all (women) who want to learn how to work magic with source codes. Registration opens at the end of July!
Sunday 20.9.2020 – Artivismus & Empowerment
Art is power
Artivism combines art and activism in the public sphere. Art wants to be liked – but it doesn’t have to be – and it refuses to be held back. That’s how it creates free spaces that allow for the development of fresh ideas and new perspectives. Art shakes things up; it is confrontational; and it empowers people to autonomously and confidently make their (critical) voices heard and, most of all, seen. When combined with a social creative will there arises: Artivism.
Moderation: Katharina Klapdor, And She Was Like: BÄM!
Wednesday 23.9.2020 – Shaping the future with ecodesign
Wednesday 23.9.2020 – Craftsmanship and Design in NRW: Rethinking Value creation
A theme day by CREATIVE.NRW, in cooperation with Heimatdesign, Institut Arbeit und Technik and Folkwang Universität der Künste. How can regional materials, regional design and local production be brought together even better? A workshop and discussion round will be held to determine the status quo on the topic of cooperation between crafts and design and to explore new possibilities, instruments and funding for sustainable and locally produced products.
Craftsmanship and Design in NRW will take place in cooperation with the ökoRAUSCH Think Tank.
Thursday 24.9.2020 – Ecodesign Conference
The Ecodesign Conference will be the grand finale of the ökoRAUSCH exhibition. Representatives from the design industry, research institutes and North Rhine-Westphalian universities and colleges will closely examine the topic of “Ecodesign” in exciting lectures and workshops.
Moderation: Tobias Häusler, WDR
The Ecodesign Conference will take place in cooperation with the ökoRAUSCH Think Tank.
After a full four weeks of exhibiting and coming together for a variety of talks and workshops our ökoRAUSCH Festival draws to a close. This calls for a celebration!
Stadt Land Welt
As in previous years, our long-time partner, and co-organiser of the festival since 2016, Stadt Land Welt e.V. has been largely responsible for the content-related and, most of all, methodologically planned communication of featured issues for a broad audience.
Complex subject areas regarding environment and development, such as the ecological footprint, the use of resources and climate change, global supply chains, land grabbing, working conditions and human rights, as well as civic involvement, will be presented in an accessible way to visitors with respective theme-based exhibitions. There will also be thematic presentations, workshops and performances.
As co-organiser, Stadt Land Welt is responsible for the educational aspect of the Festival. It will also present its own complementary programme to present to the interested public environmental and development policy issues as they pertain to sustainable design.
Co-Organiser of the ökoRAUSCH Festival
The extensive programme as well as the theme-based exhibition of the interface between environmental and development issues and design have been conceptualised together with Stadt Land Welt e.V.
