The meeco Group supports and congratulates the German Association of Christian Girl Guides and Boy Scouts (VCP), which is part of the worlds largest youth movement, for creating the 5,000 member Camp Bundeslager, the first environmentally self-sustainable camp of this size in Germany. The camp will take place in Almke, Germany (near Wolfsburg) from July 29 August 7, 2010. The Volkswagen AG and the City of Wolfsburg are also generous sponsors of the VCP.

The meeco Group will provide the camp with five sun2goTM which will be used as a learning tool in educational seminars as well as to generate climate neutral electric energy to operate the campsite (e.g., power tools, laptops, mobile phones). For the guides and scouts, environmental self-sustainability is more than just a modern phrase: to leave a place a little better than you found it is the VCP philosophy. As part of their commitment to this philosophy, the guides and scouts will participate in a sustainability contest while at camp. The meeco Group will award the clever winners with a ride in The meeco Groups SunCarrier hot-air balloon for a panoramic view of their beautiful country.

The camp will provide The meeco Group with valuable feedback about their hand-on experience with the sun2goTM. The real-life testing of portable energy solutions is one of the practical and accurate ways for The meeco Group to constantly improve their products in meaningful ways. By supporting education The meeco Group continues as an ever-present and innovative force in the renewable energy field.
