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.
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...
We were invited to the event "Decarbonising Cities" (decarbonisingcities.ch) in Bern on 1 September, organized by the British Embassy Berne (gov.uk) and Swisspower (swisspower.ch)!
We presented our collaboratively usable web app tool for realising measures to make cities greener, healthier & cooler. Our new concept provides deep insights without ever leaving simplicity.
The hybrid event (decarbonisingcities.ch) took place in Wankdorf Stadion, Berne. The slides of the presentation (PowerPoint slides, ZIP, 43 MB)
