How everything started
In Dobbiaco already in the 1980s, a "Third World Group", which repeatedly organized actions and events, existed. From 1 July 2006 to 30 April 2009, the Weltladen "Twigga" (Brunico) operated a branch in Dobiacco, where a group of volunteers from Dobiacco collaborated.
On the 1 June 2010, the Association "Weltladen Hochpustertal" was launched; The founding members were / are Ursula Bedau, Paula Kühebacher, Christine Director, Magdalena Patzleiner, Josef Steinwandter, Wolfgang Strobl, Beatrix Taschler and Marta Taschler. Through the foundation of this association the conditions for reopening of the Weltladen were given.
On the 14 February 2011, the new store named “Inso Weltladile" (“Our little world shop”) opened its doors on Schulplatz in Dobiacco. In the shop both, products of fair trade as well as products of the “Protected Workshop Biedenegg” are offered. For the management of the business a partnership between the "Weltgruppe Hochpustertal" and the Protected Workshop Biedenegg exists.
In the Weltladen Hochpustertal "Inso Weltladile" volunteers from the area Hochpustertal perform all tasks and services without remuneration and with great dedication.
