Green Engagement

If you want to get involved, here are a few associations, organizations and groups that might be of interest to you



Göttinger Landgärten


The garden network wants to connect all initiatives that are active in gardening in and near Göttingen. This would include small urban garden projects, intercultural gardens, neighborhood and community gardens, and educational gardens in the city and county of Göttingen.





Want to give nature a voice?


At BUND Kreisgruppe Göttingen you can volunteer and get involved in regional environmental protection. Here you can also gain useful experience for your future career. Association participation and association work are only one part of BUND. Environmental education, care missions, information booths and excursions are further keywords of our work. If you are interested, just come to one of our open meetings, every Thursday at 17.30 in Geiststr. 2 and get to know us and our work.


Also: Geiststraße 2 is home to many other environmental organizations, also known as GUNZ Göttinger Umwelt- und Naturschutzzentrum. Look past!
