+++ next ökoRAUSCH Festival in 2019

EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS WITH DESIGN

As the only German design festival that concentrates solely on the topic of sustainability, the ökoRAUSCH Festival from 12 – 21 May will be presenting sustainable ideas and innovative design approaches of the highest standard at what is easily the most renowned location for design in Cologne, the decorative arts museum, Museum of Applied Arts Cologne (MAKK). Our international exhibition and diverse festival programme invites you to approach creativity with sustainability and to turn knowledge into action!

More and more creative thinkers are discovering their social and ecological responsibility. And the ökoRAUSCH design and sustainability think tank supports these people in their efforts to positively influence society, culture, educational systems and the economy.

We are advancing sustainable design and, using creative means, we aim to anchor sustainablity in society. This endeavour is supported by the ökoRAUSCH think tank’s broad, multi-disciplinary concept of design that shares fluid boundaries with art. We foster awareness for social and ecological change and invite you to become creative yourself – what do you say, will you be there in May?

We look forward to seeing you there!
