Plant workshop - Children's University 2020
At this year's Children's University 2020 Vienna (kinderuni.online), the participating children were able to take a closer look at the plant's cycle. A booklet about “Hanna the hen - and her journey through the city” showed the advantages of urban greenery and why it is so important to have plants in the city. What is the cycle of the plant? How does it work in the city? And what are the advantages of plants in the city, especially in terms of heat regulation, rainwater management and air quality? The booklet gives an insight into the latest research at the university. This raises the question of whether there are differences in air quality between the city and a green courtyard, and whether plants can act as a biofilter for pollutants in the air, especially for technologically critical elements. In the booklet, the TecEUS project is linked to current research on the topic. The brochure was created and designed by DI Pia Minixhofer and DI Philipp Spörl from the Institute of Soil Bioengineering and Landscape Construction (IBLB). It shows why natural cycles are so important for the (urban) environment. If you are interested in the booklet for children (6-10 years), please feel free to contact the authors.
