We can achieve greatness when we start small.
With your personal promise
to your mother earth!
born on June 14. 1968 in Dorsten, NRW
“My Promise Mother Earth” is YOUR promise to YOUR Earth and YOUR fellow human beings which you implement for yourself. Perhaps your most important promise in these times – perhaps the most important promise of your life!
The ball on the way to the pledger!
Arnd Drossel walks 300 kilometers in his wire ball through NRW. With the project “Innere Balance” (Inner Balance) he wants to draw attention to the situation of mentally ill people who have lost their mental balance. The patron of the campaign is NRW Health Minister Karl-Josef Laumann (CDU)
Arnd Drossel continues walking… The next stage is the route from Berlin to Paderborn. He takes part in the Berlin Marathon 2008 and is partly accompanied by a Korean camera team. His project: “Innere Balance” (Inner Balance) interests the press and also the people whose paths Arnd crosses with his wire ball.
Ice-Installation at pader spring area in Paderborn. Inner balance contributes to bring nature back into balance. In order to get attention for his message, Arnd Drossel and some friends take turns to spend the nights in the iced balls. The melting outer shell highlights climate change and the melting polar ice caps.
Water-Installation at Paderlake in Paderborn. Together with his son Kalin, Arnd Drossel literally walks on water. As part of the “Paderkultour” (Pader Culture) in Paderborn, the 120 kg sphere is launched onto the water.
Arnd Drossel accompanies the Superchallenge “My Promise Mother Earth” with environmental art actions. In march 2021 he will live for two weeks in an iced ball on the hofgarten in Bonn. He motivates people to make their promise to Mother Earth. The wire ball is the focus point for artistic performances. Arnd Drossel’s action art is based on his social engagement. In this way, he enters into exchanges with people no matter where he is. People around the world connect with each other through their sustainable promises, thereby enlivening the art project with great sustainability. The four elements fire, water, earth and air can be experienced by the audience through performances incorporating the wire ball. On 1. November 2021 a relay race will be held crossing land and water to reach the UN Climate Change Conference at Glasgow. At the end of this relay race all the promises will be handed over with an urgent appeal to the conference.
