Winners 2023: Initiative «Schwammschule»

The “Schwammschule” project won  first place. The project team aims to turn school grounds into learning and living spaces for sustainable development and climate adaptation. For instance, this focuses on measurements to unseal surfaces and promote the retention of rainwater in urban areas. The innovative idea was honored with the SWCF Award and CHF 10,000. The prize money is dedicated as  a start-up funding for the implementation of the initiative and will enable the idea to be piloted in three municipalities.
