"You never get bored in coburg – there’s something to do every day!", emphasizes sebastian straubel, district administrator in coburg county. This diversity in leisure time and culture is to be presented at the "market of possibilities" in march will be presented. The motto here was also "town and country – hand in hand", says thomas nowak, third mayor of the city of coburg. The aim is to motivate organizations from the region in particular to take part in the fair, he explains. Diversity does not end at the city limits, after all.
Groups that offer leisure activities such as sports and music as well as voluntary institutions can exhibit. "There is a major problem with young people, especially in aid organizations", reports nicole klebeg from the BRK-bereitschaftsjugend coburg. At the fair, they were also able to reach parents whose children would like to do volunteer work. "After all, the parents want to make sure that their children are always in safe hands", continue.
"All kinds of organizations are invited to participate, including smaller initiatives that are looking for new members, emphasizes christine volker from the city youth ring. This should not only guarantee a rough offer for visitors, but also the possibility for networking among the exhibitors.
"The target group of visitors are of course all "coburgers", says alexander muller, chairman of the city youth ring "but especially neuburgers, students, young families and people who want to integrate here." So the focus is on the questions: what can you do here, when and where?
In order to create an offer that is as low-threshold as possible, both participation and attendance at the trade fair are free of charge. Interested exhibitors can apply until the 3rd of the month. February register with the stadtjugendring.
