The Lower Heritage Authority of the City of Kiel was brought on board right from the beginning and was thus inspired by the idea of bringing the global sustainability goals into the district and giving the former civil protection bunker an expanded meaning.
The Sandkrug Bunker Memorial and the United Nations Global Sustainable Development Goals come together here, as part of these goals are largely devoted to peace and justice. Topics that were also of importance to the children and young people involved in open youth work. Other objectives include food security and sustainable agriculture, a sustainable energy supply, quality education for all people, poverty alleviation and climate and environmental protection.
As previously described, the unveiled painting emphasizes global sustainability goals, as defined by the United Nations in 2015. The catalog of measures covers 17 goals of social, ecological and economic dimensions of sustainability. Of course, peace is paramount. This is also visible in the artwork by a white peace dove at the top of the bunker painting.
Justitia represents justice. An interesting detail is the overflowing scales filled with paint. The colors could stand for a colorful society.
In any case, the seamless transition of the ivy growing on the bunker wall into the painting is great. A certain closeness to nature is expressed here, as a bunker always represents a certain foreign body in the natural environment. Nature conservation could be included here thematically.

The festival was flanked by spray-painting walls to „let off steam“ and a small action mile with information stands around the theme of sustainability. In nice summer weather, children were especially happy about the great play and spray possibilities.
Finally, the successful cooperation of all project participants should be mentioned: The „Alliance One World SH eV“ as the initiator and sponsor of the project, the business office Gaarden, which brought all partners together, and Vonovia as a strong partner, the owner of the Sandkrug bunker a realization and, last but not least, the performing artists of „Baltic Art“ and „Vanartizm“ in collaboration with Gaarden’s youth. This awakens the curiosity for further future projects of this kind.
