Situation

As part of the project entitled "Stadtspaziergang Nachhaltigkeit" (City Walk on Sustainability), walking tours on sustainable development topics and specifically the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were to be offered in urban areas in the city of Bern, supported by a website.

Course of action

The implementation of the overall solution took place in the following phases - Preparation of website design - Graphic design of the website - Acquisition of content - Test operation - Productive operation

Result

The website was successfully implemented, provided with content by the clients and is now accessible via https://www.sdg-walk.ch since November 2021. In addition to general information on the SDGs, it offers elaborately prepared site-specific information on selected locations and projects in the city of Bern, which show very concretely what already exists - and is possible - in the area of sustainability.
