Breaking Records in Duisburg

by | 10. July 2018

Duisburg, Germany | On Saturday, 23 June, Duisburg’s center was transformed into an environmental market – a perfect opportunity for a few dome talks on Europe and the environment. And the dome-team had ambitious plans: Construction from 7.30 a.m., dismantling from 6.00 p.m. on and three rounds of talks in between, the maximum so far. Join us in our record-breaking program!
6.30 Cologne – Departure for three team members with the dome-van – yes, 6.30 am.

6.37 Cologne – Departure of two more builders from Ehrenfeld station by train

7.40 Duisburg – Arrival of the van with a slight delay in Königstraße – as it turns out there are two of them in Duisburg.

7.45 Duisburg – The rest of the team joins. The construction can start!

7.45 – 10.15 Duisburg – Construction. Despite the tiredness it runs like clockwork

I actually want to see something like this in the public space much more often so that such issues are discussed across society. […] If there’s another round of discussion I’ll be right back! Participant under the Dome in Duisburg

11.00 – 11.30 Duisburg – Start of the first dome talk with participants from Duisburg to Dhaka and smooth transitions between German and English.

13.30 – 15.00 Duisburg – Second dome talk of the day

15.00 – 16.00 Duisburg – Short break. Time to find a place to watch the Belgium-Tunisia game, refuel with caffeine and explore the environmental market.

16.00 – 17.30 Duisburg – Final Talk of the day. A successful last round!

18.00 – 19.10 Duisburg – Dismantling time and departure of the dome-van towards home.

19.32 Duisburg – Departure of the train to Cologne with a 10-minute delay for the last two team members

20.40 Cologne – A long day comes to an end for the last builders.
