As part of the nationwide "Day of the Regions", the Regiopole Region of Rostock initiated and held a regional market event on the "Kamp" in Bad Doberan on the 1st and 2nd of October.
Under the motto of "Our region in one world - together, sustainable, resilient", regionality was brought into focus: the presentation of the diversity of the regional products, insight into trade and commerce, in addition to immersion into the local art and cultural landscape all made for a unique experience.
Artists, musicians, and dance groups all displayed their skills and passion for their craft on stage. Associations used the event as a means to inform those in attendance about their enriching activities. The opportunity to participate in the program gave joy to both the young and old, with the chance to play with a large building station, a regional memory game, as well as take a combined tour of the city and cathedral.
Many people felt drawn to both the "travelling cycle-cinema" (a group cycling tour from Rostock to Bad Doberan) and the Open-Air Cinema Show on the Kamp. The state-wide activity day promotes the strengths of the region and much of what it has to offer with an array of regional products, specialities, and developments.
Every year - for two weeks around the Sunday Harvest Festival (Erntedanksonntag) - the event provides an opportunity to see our impressive regional economic activity. The main aim of the event is to make as many people as possible aware of the benefits of regional economic activity and to show that opting for regional products and services can be a key factor in supporting and promoting sustainable development in the region.
The motto for 2016, "Our region in one world - together, sustainable, resilient", thematised global responsibility for sustainable development by means of affiliation, regional association, stability, and development. For more information on the "Day of the Regions" see: www.tag-der-regionen.de.
