Hello GRUEN project participants!
Now is the time to join your group discussion about the criteria YOU think should be used to judge a green urban environment!
Each team member should propose 2 or 3 criteria, and explain why these criteria are important.
Take a look at Group 20: they are having a very interactive conversation, with everyone throwing in ideas, and asking each other questions! That is the goal of this project: an exchange of perspectives and ideas!
After you get some ideas posted and some issues raised, try to set up a group video conversation to work on a consensus for your list of criteria.
You can use WhatsApp or Messenger, or whatever social media app you prefer, to coordinate a date & time.
I have set up an Adobe Connect conference room for each team, you can check it out at: https://gruen.adobeconnect.com/teamX (where X is your team number). Connect is a free mobile app from Adobe, available on both Android and iOS, or you can use a laptop/desktop PC and a browser. I recommend the use of headphones or earbuds, so you can easily hear each other and avoid creating a feedback echo. Try sharing your desktop with a picture or diagram, so you can all see what you are talking about. Or post a link to a website in typed chat!
On April 13 we will start the next unit: applying your chosen criteria to evaluate your own home cities, and sharing your research results with each other.
Each participant needs to post 3 replies to complete this discussion forum activity, so be sure to get online and get involved with your group discussion!
Best wishes for your success,
GRUEN workshop moderator & technical facilitator
