Read Aloud Day on Kamp-Lintfort Campus

The Faculty of Communication and Environment was very happy to welcome Kamp-Lintfort’s schoolchildren in person again for the nationwide 18th Read Aloud Day – even if they had to wear masks, and follow different safety rules.

Prof. Torsten Niechoj, Professor of Economics and Political Science, and his partner Erni welcomed the children of grades 3 and 4 of the primary school at Pappelsee with their teachers. After showing them their workplace at the university and the campus, they read them a story about some strange folk living in cash machines. Sitting in a real lecture hall, many questions about the story as well as money and income in general were asked and answered together.

In addition to the university staff, numerous other Kamp-Lintfort personalities volunteer as ambassadors for reading.

Read Aloud Day started in 2004 and has attracted about 700,000 participants to this day. It is supported by “Die Zeit”, “Stiftung Lesen” and “Deutsche Bahn Stiftung”. The Faculty of Communication and Environment at Rhine-Waal University is looking forward to being part of it next year again.
