The most powerful tools for learning are the ones that students love to use. Flore Pillet believes in historical knowledge as an essential skill for everyone. This is why she has designed e-History, a new history teaching tool that creates unique opportunities and learning experiences for teachers and students in high schools. It changes the way teachers teach and students learn. e-History is a digital tool that provides teachers with everything they need for teaching. It is a web platform where teachers can write about subjects for their lessons and can publish articles that include videos, podcasts, images and books. Teachers can create their own history textbook and finally teach in the ways they’ve always imagined. e-History is a dynamic tool where students and teachers can like, comment, highlight or save articles. Using all the platform‘s functions, students and teachers can express themselves individually on different subjects. Furthermore, the platform is accessible on every device to all students from the same class. Flore Pillet is working in collaboration with students and teachers to help them to become comfortable with new technology. In so doing, she helps them to integrate the platform into their curriculum, and shows them how to create engaging articles. In addition, e-History provides a series of workshops designed specifically for educators.

Endlich ist ein aktuelles Online Magazin sowie Marktplatz mit dem Ziel, ein stärkeres Bewusstsein für zeitgenössische Bestattungskultur zu schaffen. Es bietet den Lesenden Informationen und Zugang zu neuen und alternativen Ritualen, Produkten und Diensleistungen auf diesem Gebiet. So fördert Endlich individuelle Ansätze im Umgang mit Tod, Trauer und Gedenken für die Sterbenden und ihre Hinterbliebenen. Die Idee ist es, eine zentrale Anlaufstelle für neue Bestattungskultur zu schaffen: für die Produkte, Orte und Dienstleistungen, welche sich bereits heute den wachsenden Bedürfnissen einer sich verändernden Zielgruppe angepasst haben. Digitalität, regionale Ungebundenheit, Ansprüche an Nachhaltigkeit und Ästhetik sowie gesellschaftliche Veränderungen prägen unser Leben. Jedoch haben diese Themen kaum Einfluss auf unseren Umgang mit Tod, Trauer, Gedenken und Bestattung. Beim Verlust einer geliebten Person entscheiden sich immer mehr Menschen unter hohem emotionalen und zeitlichen Druck für minimalistische und anonyme ­Lösungen. Denn die Bilder der heutigen Bestattungskultur – geprägt durch christliches Brauchtum, Friedhöfe und die Schaufenster traditioneller Bestattungsunterhemen –, passen nicht zwangsläufig zu individuellen Lebensläufen und darin begründeten Bedürfnissen. ­Jeder Mensch ist einzigartig! – Und so sollte auch jeder Mensch Zugang zu einer Bestattungskultur haben, die zum eigenen Leben passt.

Ina Navahrodskaya Who planted trees? (EN) A social/educational project Specialisation: Design Entrepreneurship Mentors: Jacqueline Baum This project was inspired by a book by the French author Jean Giono: The Man Who Planted Trees, and is a transdisciplinary project combining design with the «Art-based Environmental Education» (AEE) research method. It aims to raise awareness about the importance of trees in our life, and to promote the idea among children of protecting and respecting nature. The project is a non-profit initiative and doesn’t aim to make any financial profit. Its goal is to develop a new educational programme for schools based on AEE, and a web archive with children’s drawings on the topic. An exhibition and an archive of interviews offering diverse opinions will complete the project. Participants from different countries will be able to upload their own artworks individually to the website. The workshop plan can be used by educators worldwide and is available for download. A printed study kit can also be purchased. Furthermore, the web page/online archive will contain information about organisations that support planting trees and play an active part in decreasing deforestation worldwide. 282

Petr Vanek Coffee Ground Lab (EN) Products based on coffee waste Specialisation: Design Entrepreneurship Mentors: Anna Comiotto and Ondrej Tichy «What happens with the rest of the coffee that remains on the bottom of your daily cup of espresso?» This question motivated Petr Vanek to take a closer look at coffee waste. Food waste is one of the biggest components of our municipal waste. More than 93% of coffee grounds end up in landfill. The remaining 7% are used as fuel, biopolymer, in cosmetology, for growing mushrooms, for making paper, and for planting. In one average café in Basel, customers drink about 150-300 cups of espresso daily, which produces about 5 kg of waste. Most cafés just dispose of it as common garbage, even though coffee grounds are a valuable material. The goal of this project is to use discarded coffee grounds to develop a fully biodegradable material that is recyclable and can be easily broken down in nature. To this end, Petr Vanek established the brand Coffee Ground Lab, which will focus on sustainable products
