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!
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)
