Welcome to «Holz bewegt»

Everything important about mission, intention and activity of the competition

Firstly: Our activities and intentions relating to the wood processing trades in Northern Germany: Lower Saxony, Bremen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Schleswig-Holstein and Hamburg. We have considered for 2016/17 to engage the neighboring countries of Germany in the North and Baltic Seas for the competition, e.g. the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Poland and others.

Secondly: With the competition and exhibitions we want to promote the creative and conceptual approach in the field of education and training.

Third, the competition «Holz bewegt» has a synthesis of the three major themes “Wood – Sustainability – Design” to the destination.

Fourthly, we want to present our events to a wide audience innovative timber products and thus encourage the companies working in this field in their development.

«The mission»

Fly as long as you can

Basically you can compete with all designs that are related to wood and a certain standard of sustainability, quality of workmanship and originality.

It may like to be thought of in a larger context: For upcoming competition ideas with social and communicative aspect will get special attention.

Especially in view of the major challenges such as refugee immigration faced by us and our society, we have chosen this topic as a special responsibility.

«Holz bewegt» would help to promote daily interaction and improve.


The exhibition takes place from 7.4. until 11.6.2017 at the «Museum der Arbeit»
