City climate & city trees
Under this main topic new projects are underway. Several teams from Kerala (India), Antwerp (Belgium), Zurich (Switzerland) and maybe additionally - in the clarification process - a class from the Basque Country, individual teams from Pakistan, Canada and Dubai are in the preparation phase for doing collaborative projects using «The Horse» concept !

«The Horse» certificates
It's an idea we had already but time is come to do it. A student from India asked if she could get a certificate for her collaborative project to attach to an application for an university.
So we decided to start creating certificates, depending on the role (e.g. teacher, student, experiences, etc.) and content/media that were created (e.g. video, audio, interview, pictures, calculations, etc.) they shouldwill :) be different/dynamic. These certs can be accessed and linked online.
Züri greening participatory – on Tuesday, 7 July 2020, 14:00-16:00, we will organize the second focus group via video conference (zoom, held in German). You are cordially invited to participate! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
