The GRUEN : Green Urban Environments course is a collaboration between secondary students in the EU and Asia.
Students will use this online Moodle workshop to participate in asynchronous activities such as online discussions to share their perspectives, exchange ideas, and develop their ideas for planning their "Dream Green City". Working in small groups, each team will develop their vision for a more sustainable and healthy living environment which addresses climate change issues, transportation, housing, and work environments.
Each team will be mentored by academic experts, NGO consultants, and coordinated by university students and their local teachers.
Teams should create short presentations (3-5 minutes) which highlight their visions for a green urban environment. A panel of experts will judge all of the team presentations, and winning teams from the EU and Asia will be awarded transportation to Hong Kong to attend the conference in person, accommodations included.
The course will culminate in a Dream Green conference, where all teams will present their visions and discuss their ideas. Teams will gather at regional hubs such as university campuses, and join a synchronous web conference which links all the regional hubs together.
