Reflecta e.V. has been awarded as a contributor to the UN decade „Education for Sustainable Development“.

“Reflecta – Rethink Your World“ is a non-profit organization, brought to Germany in 2010 by Daniela Mahr, after having been staged as a festival successfully in Spain for a couple of years. Together with like-minded people, the former student from Mainz created a touring exhibition that, by means of movies, music and talks, deals with the relationship between humanity and the environment as well as with identities – subjects that are oftentimes neglected in times of growing demands on the individual and a mechanized everyday life. Our events, which are taking place a few times a year and are mainly organized by voluntary aides, aim at raising visitors’ awareness for different perspectives.
