There is a small but fine website in the pipe for a health practice in Uster.
In collaboration with ubub umweltbildung umweltberatung (ubub.ch) we conducted a workshop in the KEZO (Zweckverband Kehrichtverwertung Zürcher Oberland) to improve visitor guidance. In a small group, the participants simulated short visitor tours, which were recorded on video and subsequently discussed and analysed. In the post-processing the participants received their recordings and a summary with the impressions and possible improvements.
We are pleased to transform a leaflet into a web app (PWA) accordion for the cantonal office AWEL, Section of Operational Environmental Protection (awel.zh.ch). To create a supracantonal tool for the calculation of the extinguishing water retention volume. Yep, truly something special but special and interesting! :-) The status is beta, version 0.95, soon public.
"The Horse" concept: Collaborative projects across three continents with more than a hundred students are underway! The topic is "food and climate", the finished projects will be published on dontwastemy.energy - the students project website that counted the wonderful number of 8602 visitors and 24.439 page visits last month!

We have changed the domain save-energy.tips to dontwastemy.energy - so it matches the website motto "don't waste my energy!"
We are very happy about the visitors' interest for our students' project website and The Horse Education concept. In the month of March 3861 visitors (2235 different ones) have been on the students' project website https://dontwastemy.energy, i.e. about 72 different new visitors every day! In total we have counted 31318 page views during this period (returning visitors included). That's terrific!

As a part of "The horse education concept" we invented and tried out a new experimental concept to acquire knowledge and perform projects, we name it
There are a number of newly created befter-contributions of different environmental topics published by vocational business students.

Within the context of "The horse" (teachingweb.org) metallography students from Berlin (Lette Verein Berlin) and business students from Zurich (wkvw business school) are creating contributions in collaboration for save-energy.tips. The goal is to create imaginary scenarios encased in today's reality-based language of maths (calculations).
We had the honor to present the concept of "The horse" at two conferences.
Eliane Suter delivered speeches.
The first event was the "bili-Erfa-Tagung 2018: digital und analog", a cantonal meeting at the Zurich University of teacher education (PHZH) and the 2nd took place at the national wide event "Forum de la maturité professionnelle 2018" in Martigny (VS) organized by IFFP (Institute fédéral des hautes études en formation professionnelle).
In the context of the events we created the mini website teachingweb.org containing the main info material of the concept "The horse".
The ZürIzmir partner class project was an ambitious one in the sense of having differences in culture, language, education and infrastructure but also in respect of a relatively short time frame.
The students had the opportunity to do team research on self chosen environmental topics and experience that communication between team members (or from Zurich or from Izmir) can be a challenge. However, after having succeeded this experimental project and looking back, some lessons can be drawn for a next partner class project.

After "Don't waste my energy" last year the new website "Don't waste my resources!" is completed.
The website contributions have been created by students within the new (bilingual) teaching subject "Technik & Umwelt".
W2W - The students' website project is growing!
Everything started with the idea of having a website created by students last year. And it worked out fine as you could see in our previous post about don't waste My Energy. Now this year the students' website save-energy.tips is going to be widened in the sense of "don't waste My Resources" and "embodied energy".
