VMP GREEN ZAGREB

Based on previous four pop-up city labs GREEN Zagreb, we proposed a Virtual meeting platform with the aim to inspire Zagreb students to propose innovative solutions and discuss their insights with their fellow students across UNIC alliance. This VMP was held in four separate sessions: TOPIC: ECOLOGICAL RISK IN URBAN EUROPEAN AREAS, Tuesday 7th December, 12:00 - 14:00 TOPIC: ACCESS TO GREEN AREAS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES Tuesday 7th December, 16:00 - 17:30 TOPIC: LIVING ARRANGEMENTS IN URBAN AREAS IN EUROPE for Wednesday 8th December, 14:00-16:00 TOPIC: HUNGER AND ACCESS TO FOOD IN URBAN AREAS, Wednesday 8th December, 16:45-18:45 We used the method of a rotation station approach meaning that UNIC students would transfer from one breakout room to another, and Zagreb students as host would remain in their basic group. Each session was opened and closed in bigger group with short introduction and shared conclusions.
