Project idea

By means of the anchoring of the careful use of energy and our raw materials already starting from childhood positive synergies for the population as a whole can be brought about. True to the motto,  "You can't teach an old dog new tricks“ our smallest citizens can hence become ambassadors of the Innovation City idea.

The aim in this project is to develop for the city of Bottrop a certification procedure building upon the know-how of already existing checklists.
This takes place in cooperation with the child day-care centre "Kindertagesstätte Quellenbusch e.V.", at which in the context a project/project series on the topic of climate protection and energy is being worked out.

One title (Agenda 21 kindergarten or climate-protection kindergarten or similar) as well as a logo for the certification will be developed in the course of the pilot phase together with the participants.

The end of the pilot phase willl be the ceremonial conferring of the award on the child day-care centre  "Kindertagesstätte Quellenbusch e.V."  as well as documentation on the project carried out on the topic of climate protection and energy.

In the next phase all of the nursery schools / kindergartens and child day-care centres in Bottrop will have the revised checklist sent to them in order via it to select facilities for a second round.
