Saturday morning, September 12, 2020, at 9:45 a.m. on the Burgplatz in front of WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management in Vallendar: briefing and lineup for the annual Rhine CleanUp event under special conditions to comply with WHU's internal Corona regulations. As the strongest group on-site, the approximately 40 volunteering WHU students and staff members - equipped with mouth-and-nose protection, gloves, and garbage bags - went in small groups to the island of Niederwerth to clear the Rhine of garbage and create awareness of how to deal with waste.
The student clubs SensAbility - The WHU Impact Summit and WHU Studenten Helfen e.V. (WHUSH), which focus their commitment on sustainable business and social responsibility, had called on the WHU community to participate in the initiative. "For us at SensAbility and WHUSH, it is an important concern to make a contribution to the protection of nature and to become active for Vallendar together as a community. Besides, we were able to get in touch with the citizens of Vallendar personally and strengthen the community in the town," explains Philipp Gerber, Bachelor student and co-organizer of the conference of the same name “SensAbility - The WHU Impact Summit.”
