The BUND in Heidelberg has over 2000 members, about 50 volunteers and four permanent employees. The BUND’s main focus lies on youth and adult education. Furthermore, an environmental consultation service - financed by the city of Heidelberg - is offered, where citizens receive answers to their questions about environmental protection and nature conservation in houses and gardens, climate protection, pollutants and health, plastic avoidance and other topics. In addition, there are various working groups which work e.g. in urban planning to ensure that nature is preserved in the city and that measures are taken to reduce waste and to protect the climate.
