NEW! stadtfund online shop

2012-12-03 Stadtfund Handschuhe Header-klein

Wir haben gerade ein stadtfund Handschuhe online shop geöffnet! Dort ist zur Zeit eine bunte Vielfalt von etwa 60 Paar Handschuhe (Damen, Herren und Kindern) zu sehen.

HIER GEHT ES ZUM SHOP: http://stadtfund.dawanda.de

Was sind stadtfund Handschuhe?
Was passiert eigentlich mit all den verlorenen Handschuhen … alle Jahre wieder … wenn diese von ihren so vertrauten Partnern getrennt, plötzlich ihre eigene Wege gehen? Und was passiert eigentlich mit der anderen Hälfte? Hat diese bei der nächsten Aufräumaktion des Kleiderschranks eine reelle Chance auch weiterhin als Lieblingsstück auf den vorderen Rängen zu bestehen? Doch wer trägt schon gerne freiwillig seine Schusseligkeit in Form von zwei unterschiedlichen Handschuhen zur Schau?

stadtfund will das ändern … Mut zum Handschuhmix aus Fundstücken aus der Stadt!

Es handelt sich tatsächlich um Fundstücke aus der Stadt. Die Handschuhe werden von uns Continue reading

We have a new Co-editor on Exploring Rurality!

Since April, Kjersti Nordskog (MA Political Geography) and I have had the pleasure of editing Exploring Rurality (you can read more about us here). However, now we are welcoming a third editor to the team. Eric Marr is well know to those of you who follow Exploring Rurality. He has contributed to the blog several times already: Eric reported from Day 11 of the ICRPS Quebec Summer School, and presented for us the findings in his master thesis on challenges of transportation in rural Canada in part one and part two.

Eric is from Petrolia, Ontario a former oil town in central Canada turned agricultural community. He left the rural life to pursue education in Montreal, Toronto, and finally Guelph where he recently graduated from the Master of Science in Rural Planning and Development program at the University of Guelph.

Eric currently works in policy development for the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), and his research interests include transportation in rural communities and land-use planning policy.

While Katja and Kjersti are both located in Europe, Eric lives in North-America and will provide a comparative prespective on rural challenges and policies, and bring in fresh, new ideas to the editorial team. We look forward to work with Eric on Exploring Rurality further!

Det er mye politikk i hva vi spiser og hvem som spiser hva

Mat, hvem som spiser hva, og ikke, er på alles lepper for tiden, og det er bra. Hvem som spiser hva, produksjon- og bearbeidingsprosesser, distribusjon, matsikkerhet, leverandørkjeder, tilgjengelighet og Ola Normanns middagstallerken er i sannhet politisk sprengstoff.


lørdag 17/3/2012 var Jürgen og jeg i Markthalle Kreuzberg (Berlin) og spiste fire retters søppelmat i hyggelig lag. Kveldens vertinner hadde samlet grønnsaker og frukt som ellers hadde gått i søpla etter helge markedet i Mayback Ufer, og vin og brød fra Markthalle.

Le Monde diplomatique magasinet viet forrige nummer, NO 10, 2011 til temaet ”Verdensernæring i det 21. Århundre – Cola og Gresshopper”, denne helgen åpner Continue reading

Müllmonster / Garbage monster / søppelmonster

 

On the last days of the year I have had the pleasure to give a bunch of small “Müllmonster” or “Garbage Monsters” their own webpage. Müllmonster is a project by Urban Curator Jürgen Breiter in cooperation with üNN. During a couple of weeks in October and November 2011, 45 kids from 1.- 3. class at Erica Mann Grundschüle in Berlin-Wedding made a garbage expedition in their school neighborhood. Together with Jürgen they collected and analyzed their findings before creating 45 garbage monsters. Each monster is especially found of a certain kind of garbage and therefore have special attributes. All monsters will be available as stickers first thing in the new year!

Follow the Garbage Monsters and read more about the project here: www.müllmonster.com

Das Projekt “Müllmonster” hat neulig eine eigene Webseite gekriegt wo die ganze kleine Monstern, gezeichnent von 45 Schülern aus 1. bis 3. Klasse der Erica Mann Grundschule in Berlin-Wedding gesehen werden können. Das Projekt ist von Urban Curator Jürgen Breiter im Kooperation mit üNN. 

UPDATE January 25th 
Here a few pictures from the day we gave each kid a pile of his/her own “Müllmonster-stickers”. Lots of fun! And immensely proud children with their self made toys! What was great to see was how they immediately started to swap and trade stickers instead of sticking (…pardon the pun) to their own.
