18 | Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH Neighbourhood around the airport For our region In 2019, FBB employees were involved in the corporate volunteering programme at the AWO senior citizens' home in Deutsch Wusterhausen and the riding and driving club in Selchow. As a growth and impulse driver, FBB has a special status in the region, but the neighbourhood also brings challenges. For this reason, constant and constructive dialogue between the Airport Company and the neighbouring districts and municipalities is essential. Rosemarie Meichsner, our the Environs Officer, therefore looks after the interests of the local residents. In addition, FBB supported a total of 236 projects in the airport region as part of its work in the surrounding area in 2019: both through financial support in the form of sponsorships or donations for clubs and with special activities such as corporate volunteering, cultural sponsorships for daycare centres and schools, the Airport Campus lecture series or Christmas campaigns. The neighbourhood newspaper “Nachbarn – Wir in der Flughafenregion” (Neighbours – We in the Airport Region) provides monthly information to residents about current developments in the airport region. 2,306 children and young people benefit from cultural sponsorships.
