My climate-friendly Hamburg 2030
First place for the students from Maretstrasse school in Harburg
Six teams of school students have won prizes for how Hamburg can still be a good city to live in even in the face of climate change. The winners received their awards last September from Hamburg’s Environment Minister Jens Kerstan himself at the ministry offices. In a project entitled “Maret 2030 – Ideas for a climate-friendly school”, 24 students from class MA2 and their teacher, Ms Brandt, conducted a critical analysis of the current climate status of their classrooms and the whole of the school campus. It won them the first prize – a weekend trip to Copenhagen, the pioneering European city when it comes to the sustainability. Tutech ran the competition on behalf of the Environment Ministry, including organising and running the trip to Copenhagen in November 2019.
