Our Plan:  
"German and American students teamed up to calculate and compare their ecological footprint, examine the effects of human activities on the environment and contemplate on possible solutions. In small groups assigned to the four modules Food, Recycle, Fashion and City, they investigated if and how their ideas could be put into practice. The four action plan boards are a reflection and collection of small and simple steps that teenagers in rural America and small town Germany can take towards a greener world."
