Citizens coming together to rebuild local communities
Citizen Spring Academy 🌱☀️🌻
Incubator for starting new sustainable places in the city. In a world that has to change, we need entrepreneurs more than ever. We need them to turn our cities into 15-minute cities, where we can all enjoy a fun and sustainable lifestyle within a 15-minute radius, walk or bike. If you have ever dreamed of starting your own sustainable shop, this is for you!
Citizen Garden 🌱 🌻
Nature defending itself in cities made for cars. Use the space in front of your garage door or next to a pedestrian crossing where cars are not supposed to park to put a community garden. It also creates a reason to bring neighbors together around a shared project.
Citizen Bike Garden 🚲 🌱
Building with neighbors a bike shed for 6-8 bikes with two citizen gardens on top.
