Social Commitment at HANSA-PARK

Double-digit millions donated for specific projects

HANSA-PARK‘s social commitment is reflected in the double-digit millions the Park has contributed to specific projects. Here are some of the projects the Park has supported.

Social Weeks

Since 1990 HANSA-PARK has granted between 19,000 and 25,000 people in special circumstances free admission to HANSA-PARK under the Social Weeks programme. The groups that are ultimately permitted to visit the Park are solely chosen by social umbrella organisations.

Landesfeuerwehrverband Schleswig-Holstein e.V. [State Fire Brigade Association]

Youth fire brigade members are the future firefighters of the voluntary fire brigades. The youth departments of the fire brigades teach up-and-coming firefighters about social commitment and help them to build the skills or experiences needed for personal growth. To encourage that and get more young people to join the firefighting service, HANSA-PARK supports the LFV SH youth fire brigade’s campaign “Stay with us”.
In particular HANSA-PARK sponsors the training of voluntary fire brigade management staff. In the seminars young people learn how to address their team’s needs and motivate them.
Moreover, HANSA-PARK has been hosting the annual Youth Fire Brigade Special-Event Day - a joint project by HANSA-PARK and Landesfeuerwehrverband Schleswig-Holstein under the auspices of Schleswig Holstein’s minister president –since 2005.

ZiSch - A Newspaper at School in co-operation with s:hz

Apart from funding projects, HANSA-PARK also makes time to host school classes and accompany them through the Park. Managing Director Christoph Andreas Leicht explains, “When we talk about Zisch, we always talk about education, too. The newspaper is an important educational tool because reading means learning. That’s our message to young people and that’s why HANSA-PARK is on board!”
