Underground tour Rotaract-Club Meschede-Warstein, April 14th, 2005 !

As I mentionned on the photo page about the underground tour of the Junge Union Meschede, one of Pro-Bergbau's objectives is to convince especially young people (and by that the future decision-makers) of the necessity of a vivid German hard coal mining industry and by that of a safe domestic energy supply.

That is the reason why Pro-Bergbau organized an underground tour for the Rotaract-Club of Meschede-Warstein in Germany (http://www.rotaract-meschede.de) - the president of which I was at that time - on April 14th of 2005 at Ost colliery in Hamm (Germany). As explanation: Rotaract-Clubs (http://www.rotaract.de) are the groups for young people that have been started by Rotary International (in Germany: http://www.rotary.de). The clubs have the target to make young people be responsible-minded and active members of the society.
