6th (and last) transnational Learning, Teaching and Training Activity held virtually and organised by the German school “Kurt Schumacher Gesamtschule” in Karben

a) the Water workshop on local environmental interventions, mainly on water projects
b) the Architecture workshop with a special focus on sustainable architecture
c) the Future workshop on Life in the next decade – particularly, after CoVid19
Of course, the idea for the last workshop was not included in our initial plans made back in 2018.
Each national team made their presentations on Architecture and Environmental Issues in their countries with Slides or on video for all the partners to watch in plenum and then the workshops ran simultaneously for their members to cooperate on their common products.
On the last day, there was time for all the participants to do three more tasks: respond to the Quiz on Architecture, take the survey about Environmental Issues in their regions and interact on a Padlet discussing ideas for Environmental Interventions.
Beyond the scope of this activity, an international group of participants drafted a mini-step-by-step business plan for a virtual start-up enterprise for environmental and cultural sustainability. They considered the need for natural goods and sustainable services in food, entertainment and tourism and came up with this presentation:
