Together with ARENA2036 and the Institute of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Science (ENI), the Green Office at the University of Stuttgart has submitted a funding application to the Climate Innovation Fund of the state capital Stuttgart. And it was successful.
The Greenesto project is one of ten projects to receive ten million euros in funding from the state capital Stuttgart. The funding is especially targeted at innovative projects in the field of climate protection and climate impact adaptation and is part of a 200-million-euro climate protection program from the city of Stuttgart. This fund is one of the world's largest municipal climate innovation funds.
From January to December 2022, the Greenesto - adVANce your mindset project will be promoting dialogue on sustainability among diverse populations to initiate sustainable thinking and climate awareness, as well as encourage proactive action.
The workshop format is based on the method of mindset change and design thinking. A converted e-van serves as a mobile workshop platform.
In the long term, the project aims to develop a blueprint for sustainability dialogue; because in the fight against climate change, what is primarily needed in addition to technological solutions and political guidelines, is a rethink among the general population.
