Gütersloh Citizens' Day – a day when the spotlight is on volunteer work!
The idea behind the Citizens' Day is just as inspirational as the wide range of associations and initiatives in the Gütersloh area. The Citizens' Day is intended to provide a platform on which the associations and initiatives can have their say and present themselves and their work – including eager canvassing for support!
The Citizens' Day is intended to entertain, stimulate, inform and bring the people of Gütersloh together for an exchange of ideas. After all, a wide range of volunteer work take place in Gütersloh: from the Anti-Rust Initiative to the Central Federation of Assyrian Associations in Germany, from social services to hobby groups and sports associations to foundations and counselling centres – all doors are open to anyone who wants to take part in volunteer work in Gütersloh.
The Citizens' Day was held for the first time in 2017, and the success story continued in 2019. The Dreiecksplatz and Theodor-Heuss-Platz in front of the city hall were the venues, with around 50 associations presenting their commitment on stage and on the numerous stands.
The Gütersloh public relations department, volunteer work coordinator Elke Pauly-Teismann and gtm collaborate to organize the event. The Bertelsmann Foundation supports not only Citizens' Day, but also numerous other community projects.
More information will be available here during the course of the year, or on the association's web site Gütersloh resourcefulness.
