Hello GRUEN participants!

The current discussion forum "Evaluate your City" is picking up steam! (a metaphor for getting busy)

I see posts from Algeciras in Spain, Hong Kong, and Madurai in India!

Don't forget that the forum instructions are:

Each student in a pair should post their evaluation of their city on half of the criteria, with a short summary.  Provide links back to your source documents.  

The cleanest way to provide links to sources is to convert your key assertions to links!  Be sure to tick the box "Open in a new window".

Also, each pair of students should put up their city report post as a reply to each other, so the two of you are in the same conversational thread!  Then go and read other posts, ask questions, give feedback, etc by Replying to them.  Finally, don't forget to answer questions posed to you.  Each student needs a minimum of three posts to complete this activity.

In the news recently:

What would a city designed by women be like?

Bristol bans private diesel cars from the city center

Climate change: ‘Clear and unequivocal’ emergency, say scientists

Last, I'd love to see screenshots from some student SimCity Buildit simulator cities posted on the "Share your progress" forum!

Best wishes for your success,
