Conceptual framework –
what we already agreed on
• No conventional workshop
concept, but open goals.
• Focus on tasks, where
participants create
something together during
the camp
• Participants should have the
right of co-determination
• Focus hiking/exploration:
Everyone should participate
at least once
• Not part of the programme,
• part of everyday life during
• Goal is to consciously use
Our food concept – continuation of the box catering
Food is presorted and
handed out in
regional and
seasonal food
Experience showed: cooking
groups should consist of at
least 50 persons
Food should be
organic, if possible,
though this is subordinate
to locally grown and
seasonal food
Full Steam (Volldampf) –
The slogan of the national jamboree
During the national
jamboree we want to
take up the spirit of
the 19th century and
experience technical
progress and
Behind that
slogan there is
the era of the
We want to sense the
unlimited euphoria of
progress, the dawn of a
new era, and at the
same time address the
social implications of
the industrialization.
Full steam (Volldampf)–
The idea behind it
Subcamps represent regions, that focus on different aspects of
the industrial revolution (mining, textile industry, poets and
thinkers, …)
It is our goal to organize a fair on the initially void plaza. How
this is going to evolve is related to the foci of the different
Participants in the respective regions agree on a way to present
their focus at the beginning of the camp. In this way each
participant has the opportunity to actively contribute with her/his
The world’s fair, also called Exposition Universelle Internationale
(Expo), is an international fair that was established during the
industrialization to present technical and artisan accomplishments. The
first world’s fair took place in London’s Hyde Park in 1851 at Prince
Albert’s suggestion.
Full steam on Schachen? Why the slogan perfectly
fits the camping ground!
The biosphere reserve “Swabian Alb” is
a region where successful nature and
environment protection goes along
with social and economic
development of the people living
At the same time many
high-tech companies
which have their origin
during the industrial
revolution are located
within the metropolitan
area of Stuttgart.
The surrounding nature and the
urban area allow us to depart to
something new ourselves: By
explorations and hikes.
