Klimakunstlabor = Climate, Art and Laboratory?
The Moabiter Stadtgarten is suffering: From the consequences of climate change but also from the conflict of use between humans and nature. Soil and vegetation are struggling with severe silting and increasingly prolonged periods of drought. Small animals and insects in particular that use the park as a vital refuge in the urban concrete jungle, are now in need of our attention and support.
With the KLIMAKUNSTLABOR, a starting point will be set on September 18 to learn and think collaboratively about a climate resilient park for flora, fauna and culture.
In a joint kick-off at 2 pm, we will start with the topics of biodiversity and climate resilience in Moabiter Stadtgarten and learn about a green future: Urban Forest Gardens. There will be six stations spread throughout the Moabiter Stadtgarten to experience and create urban nature artistically, to explore the garden scientifically and understand its biodiversity, and to get involved in climate action. Wild bees, edible city, Tiny Forstests, change of perspectives, flower meadows or modular insect hotels: The newly gained knowledge of the participants and the different needs of the park visitors as well as urban nature will be collected on a knowledge board to create a vision of the future of Moabiter Stadtgarten. How can we, the neighborhood and guests of the park and the ZK/U, create a climate-friendly and resilient Moabiter Stadtgarten?
We are looking forward to learning and understanding our environment collectively with you! To change perspectives and to see new ways.

MOABITER BAUMGESCHICHTEN // MOABIT TREE STORIES
Learning workshop from 27. Until 29. Of June 2022 for creative research on Moabit’s city trees, together with students of the Heinrich-von-Stephan-Gemeinschaftsschule.
Central results from last year’s Klimakunstlabor have been further developed for this year: During the learning Workshop Moabiter Baumgeschichten, students of Heinrich-von-Stephan-Gemeinschaftsschule will give voices to different trees in Beusselkiez and Huttenkiez by telling stories from the tree’s perspectives. These stories will be available to read and listened to through QR-codes stuck to the trees – so keep your eyes and ears open.
