"The project implied great effort to us to work together on a web-based approach, but we managed with high commitment and enthusiasm, and the outcomes are very satisfying. Congratulations to all other teams!
We appreciate this participative creative idea to jointly participate towards sustainability, believing that creativity and cooperation are the key to open new ways to live together."
Federico Biesing, Argentinien
"I would like to thank the "Alumniportal Deustchland" team for providing such a platform for sharing ideas and getting connected. I must admit that during this Hands-on project on Sustainability, I took extra efforts to expand my network (both online on APD, and also offline where I have recommended APD to some of my friends).
The project has been an opportunity to do research and discuss on the subject of Urban Agriculture and the vast potential it has for climate change mitigation actually dawned upon me."

"One thing I personally noticed is nearly all the team members views on sustainability are very similar, whether it is urban transport, urban agriculture, flood protection or climate change effects. The change we want to see has to come within. The approach to change is not eas: Having many directions, one needs to follow the direction which best suits their local concerns first.
When the competition started I wasn’t sure whether urban agriculture is practical or not. But I understood from the team member’s discussion and especially from the comments from the alumni group that it is realizable and things have already started in that direction.
