The Hass company’s fields of business include photovoltaic work, installation, renovation and real estate. In the Johannesburg, according to the press release, experiential educator Markus Eilers and his team want to inspire as many young people as possible in the stationary group area to ride bicycles in order to then simultaneously recognise environmental problems on organised tours and react accordingly.
