Wikipedia preview box

Update 10-Dec-2021: First release is out. 
More on the project website

In the commitment of the «THE ! association» (the-horse.education) and its websites we have realized a new feature for websites. It is intended to be an additional knowledge tool for students and all readers to become better informed.  

Every Wikipedia link automatically gets a preview box (summary) which appears on mouseover or a fingertip and is recognizable in the text through a (W). We use it on our own websites, e.g. dontwastemy.energy (student teams' collaboration projects). 

Copy one line of code is all you have to do to get the feature for your website as well!
It's also easy to integrate into a WordPress site or another CMS.

Try it out!

Add the following line of code to the bottom of your website, and all Wikipedia links will magically pop up a nice preview box with the article summary, that's all!

Face-to-face meeting "Züri begrünt" participants

Green up Zurich

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.

Neighbourhood Lab City Trees

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...
