The “Green Cross Events – Don’t Forget” campaign has been designed and managed by event agency Zeitpol in cooperation with Green Cross Switzerland.
Today’s generation of young people no longer has any personal memories of military and industrial catastrophes such as Chernobyl or the Cold War. The Green Cross Events aim to remind the public of past events like these.
A total of four events with the theme “Don’t forget” will take place in 2010 and 2011. Their aim is not only to raise awareness for the long-term consequences of military and industrial catastrophes but also to stage celebrations with live music and typical meals and drinks. The proceeds from the events will be directly invested in the projects of Green Cross Switzerland.
On 26 April 2010, Ukrainian band Haydamaky performed in protective gear at Hirschenplatz in Zürich to raise awareness for the 24th anniversary of the reactor catastrophe in Chernobyl.
