Biotop maintenance with Lanius

Activity  Review

There are different ways to practice nature stewardship. Our local team joined the regional nonprofit Lanius during summer in a few biotope maintenance events to learn about nature beyond city limits. Being a nature steward is a rewarding activity which should be made visible to others as a good example to follow. Our web app makes this now possible.

Gamified Nature Education Is Key to Urban Climate Change Adaptation

Mobile Campus

Dutch urban planning student Lillah Martien wrote during her internship with Green Steps STP a super interesting paper which seeks to bridge the seemingly unrelated domains of spatial planning and spatial education in an Austrian pilot project. Gamified environmental education with massive citizen participation is highlighted as a bottom-up strategy to complement existing municipal top-down measures.
