The department for society, innovation and sustainability (Referat für Gesellschaft, Innovation und Nachhaltigkeit) starts a new initiative: "Green Campus". Its our vision to modernize ecological aspects of the TU Graz Campus in a cooperation of HTU and TU Graz. One of the main pillars of this initiative is a participatory and sustainable development of our Campus. The creation of "Green Spots", places of peace and tranquility for people, will serve animals and insects as sanctuary. Maintained and developed by students, neighbours and employees these green and vibrant city oases are also hot spots for research.This is demonstrated at the first Green Spot at Stremeyrgasse. Regular open garden days gather more and more people that are motivated to participate in urban gardening and many other projects.
