What do children from MV want for Children’s Day

Rostock.Paul Hoppe has a very special desire: “People need to be more aware of the environment,” says the 13-year-old, who has just dealt with the subject in school. “Statistically, people throw away their t-shirts after only wearing them four times. So much clothing is thrown out instead of, for example, being donated. I don’t think that’s a good thing,” the high school student explains. The war in Ukraine worries him too.
