The Green Belt – nature’s rich bounty along the former border

Did you know you can discover rare orchids and endangered animal species along the Green Belt that runs through the heart of reunified Germany? Where the Iron Curtain was still in place some 25 years ago, separating two social systems, a vision has now become a verdant reality: this 1,400 km habitat stretching along the former border is home to more than 5,200 species of flora and fauna, some of which were thought to be extinct. It is an ideal place for long bike rides and walks.

The GNTB is required to comply with the procurement rules for public sector organisations when awarding contracts. These include, in particular, very strict limits on the placement of products and themes, and on covert advertising in the video/film to be created.

To enable the GNTB to comply with its statutory requirements, the contract partner undertakes to provide the GNTB with a list of all products and themes that can be identified in the video. The GNTB may demand that the relevant sequences be cut or edited to make them legally compliant.

The contract partner gives an assurance that such placements are inadvertent and that he or she has not received any money or other consideration for their inclusion.
