Urban reforestation e. V.

We agreed to focus on planting green in cities. We would like to make a storage for seeds of theatened trees and want to offer adoption of trees.

Nabila - overnight stays

Due to our assignment 1-2 topic: increasing local housing shortage, I thought about the idea of buying properties for homeless. Those properties will then provide the possibility of overnight stays for homeless, as long as they don’t take any drugs and if they agree to pay rents for the amount of money they would spent on average for drugs. The properties will be financed by funds of social investors and donations

Lisa - mixed shared flats

Due to the fact of accommodation shortage in cities there should be a platform for finding other people for mixed shard flats. Mixed refers to the age, because elderly people occupy proportionally much more square meter than other age groups (husband or wife died) and simultaneously have high need for contact. Whereas younger people have a need for living space and at the same time more free time(especially students) to help and communicate to their elder flat mates.

Natalie - free city-tours

My idea for a social enterprise is to offer city-tours for free from voluntary local people. To realise this social idea, it is necessary to create a webpage.

Yorck - urban and rural reforestation

The idea is to start a reforestation project as this is not being offered otherwise. Private persons can grow trees from seeds and cultivate them on their balconies and in their gardens until they reach a certain height. Later these trees can be planted in alleys and small wood land areas.
