Finally the time had come - some participants of the "Züri begrünt" (zuericooldown.ch) focus group (Green up Zurich participatory) met in person on Thursday, 2 December 2021. We started at the Kulturpark (kulturpark.ch) in Züri West presenting the web app prototype followed by a discussion and exchange of ideas.
After a short walk and app testing under the plane tree at Schiffbau (example in the web app) we rounded off our get together in "Les Halles" (les-halles.ch) next door where we discussed further over a good dinner. We enjoyed it a lot!
Thank you all for being there, for your enthusiasm and feedback.
Looking back we are proud to have created a web app prototype as pioneers of a participatory movement.
The Horse Education ! association (the-horse.education) enables young people in Switzerland and worldwide to realise collaborative & cross-cultural environmental projects.
Why "The Horse"?
The horse is a symbol for sustainable light-weight traveling - you pack only the needed knowledge, skills & tools for the journey.
What is the goal?
"Learning through experience"; so that we do not lose sight of the goal, seven proven steps or lighthouses (dontwastemy.energy) point the way.
We at su-pa believe that the ability to realise projects together and at eye level is fundamental for a sustainable and positively acting society. That is why we make our knowledge and experience available and actively support THE ! association.
Become a member (the-horse.education), too!
Collecting trees - knowing trees - protecting trees.
"City Ideas" is a project competition of the City of Zurich and until 7.11. all people who live, work or spend their free time in Zurich can vote for their 5 favourite city ideas that they would like to see implemented in Zurich.
Public trees are better protected than private ones.
Public trees are recorded in the tree register of the city of Zurich, private ones are not.
This is where our idea comes in! More...
suter & partner is in the process of changing the legal form of the company from a general partnership Kollektivgesellschaft to a LLC (GmbH) or Ltd. (AG).
The company name might change slightly but our motto will remain the same:
"Because ideas can change reality!"
We were invited to the Decarbonising Cities event at the Wankdorf Stadion in Bern on 1 September, organized by the British Embassy Berne (gov.uk) and Swisspower (swisspower.ch, dcc event)!
We presented our collaboratively usable web app tool for realising measures to make cities greener, healthier & cooler in a pitch. The new concept provides deep insights without ever leaving simplicity!
