Our Challenges 

Sustainable mobility concept

The increase in population in the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region is the cause of the increase in automobile traffic. This brings with it further sustainability problems, such as an increase in emissions, noise, accidents and pollution. 

How would you solve this traffic problem and make Nuremberg greener? 

Waste pollution

Conscious handling of waste is the be-all and end-all of sustainability. Lack of education about the harmful consequences of casually throwing away waste is an acute problem today. 

What incentives would you set so that people are more aware of their waste and don't throw it on the street?

Food waste

12 million tons. That's how much food waste there is in Germany.

Unlike some countries, where millions of people go hungry, in others fresh food is thrown awayProsperity should not be a reason to be reckless behavior towards food. 

How would you promote the conscious use of food in everyday life?
