We are expanding Schau aufs Land with the country package Slovenia! Under the name Začuti podeželje you can get to know Slovenian organic farms from 22 July. Advance booking is now available.
In many places we are surrounded by them, whether we like it or not. Sometimes they seem annoying, but without their existence, ours would be threatened. We are talking about: Insects.
Impressive facts and figures
Insects are one of the most diverse groups of animals on earth and have a wide variety of shapes and colours. Between 925,000 and 1,000,000 species are currently known and scientifically documented - the number of unreported cases is probably much higher. According to estimates, there could be between 2 and 50 million species. A wide range, which underlines the need for further research. In Austria, the population is estimated at 40,000 insect species, 345 of which are endemic, i.e. only found in Austria.
We decided right from the start of the platform that for every membership sold (excluding voucher payments) we would donate €1 to a project or initiative that works towards a more sustainable future. For the first year, we have chosen the climate protection projects of the Boku Vienna.
Tourism is responsible for 8 % of global greenhouse gas emissions (and rising) and thus contributes directly to climate change. This also includes travelling by motorhome.
We are in the press! After Leon's interview with the APA, we were surprised by a radio report on Tuesday morning and immediately afterwards by a few newspaper articles. As a result, we received so much positive feedback that we immediately had one of our longest, but most motivated working days! We are still happy about all the kind words and the great feedback.
Regionality has never been as important as it is now!
In times of the Corona crisis, we are all moving closer together - even if not in direct contact. We see a multitude of beautiful solidarity assistance that did not exist on this scale before.
What is also becoming very clear at this time is the enormous value of regionality. Because one thing is clear: you cannot import food security!
Exactly three months ago, the three of us met at Startup Playground 2019.
Every year, Ideentriebwerk Graz organises this brilliant event - with the aim of networking the start-up scene in Graz. A big thank you for this, because it has already worked really well for us!
And now? Read it for yourself in this blog post!
We are Leon, Karin and Christian and together we form the team behind Schau aufs Land. What we all have in common is our passion for travelling with our campers, the joy of meeting new people and our awareness for a more sustainable way of living.
We want to bring more sustainability into the world! At home as well as when travelling, we always try to buy ecologically and, if possible, also regionally and seasonally.
Premiere for Schau aufs Land!
Last Thursday, we were able to present our project to around 120 Sonnentor partner businesses at the Sonnentor cultivation meeting.
The presentation was very important for us to get direct feedback on Schau aufs Land from farms for the first time. The feedback and inputs were very positive and we are looking forward to further developing the Schau aufs Land concept together with such open-minded farms on the basis of these opinions.
After a short but very intensive period of preparation, we are launching our online presence today and would like to briefly explain what Schau auf's Land is all about:
Schau aufs Land is a platform that brings together motorhome travellers and farms and creates added value for all.
From experience, campervan and motorhome travellers are always looking for close-to-nature and idyllic pitches in the countryside. In addition, we believe that there are a lot of farms that would be happy to have a new and open-minded group of customers. So why not bring these two groups together?
