Title of Challenge
Climathon Berlin 2016: Our 3 Challenges
Description of city challenge
1. Topic: ZERO-WASTE: "Development of a guideline for a zero-waste school in Berlin: How could a zero-waste concept of a Berlin school look like?"

Details: At several sites in Germany Veolia cooperates with schools. This is a way to motivate the youngest generation for circular economy. As avoiding waste represents the first and a very important step towards circular economy – why not inspire students and teachers with a guideline for a zero-waste school? Within our challenge we would like to integrate all existing information concerning waste prevention, enrich it with practical impulses from waste professionals and school experts, in order to establish a useful guideline to become a zero-waste school step by step. This guideline is of course available for everybody as an open source. Veolia, Bildungscent e.V., other network partners and every participant of the challenge are invited to spread the document, to accompany schools when using it and though contribute to sustainable change in the educational sector.

2. Topic: WASTE MANAGEMENT/ -COLLECTION: "How is it possible to reduce Berlin's processes of waste removal when it comes to collecting waste from private households?"

Background information

In Berlin there are six different waste fractions at household level.
• recovered paper (paper/cardboard/cardboard boxes; print material and packaging)
• glass waste (e.g. bottles; the collection is divided into white / coloured or „waste containers“ or separated in white / green and brown or via “Depotcontainer” (Iglus), which are in public hand.
• recyclable fraction (mostly plastic-, metal- and composite packaging, but also non-packaging like plastic flower pots)
• biowaste
• residual waste

Residential means that there are usually 2 or 4-wheeled waste bins with a volume of 60 litre and 1.100 litre, which are located on the property of the renter / owner, so that the citizens only have short ways to reach the bin. This comfortable solution has the purpose to increase the acceptance of waste separation and thus the quality of waste materials, which is the prerequisite for high-quality recycling.
However, six different waste fractions in six different bins also means that there are six different vehicles that pass each house. Those different vehicles hardly ever drive along the same street at the same time, since the tours and working hours differ. But this means that in certain streets there are vehicles for waste removal frequenting daily. Moreover, there are fractions like recovered paper or glass waste, which are recycled privately, meaning that there are various waste companies circulating around Berlin, who are in charge of this. For this reason, it is even possible that in one street there are various vehicles for the recycling of recovered paper passing by around the same time to collect recovered paper. In addition to this, further streams of transportation are around to dispose bulky waste and bigger electronic devices.

This system of waste collection does offer advantages when it comes to sorting accuracy of the various recyclable materials and user friendliness. At the same time, it may harm the quality of life at home, especially through the ….
• Decrease of the traffic flow and increase of traffic jams through „Stop and Go“ of the vehicles for waste collection der (especially narrow roads are blocked by refuse collection vehicles. i
• Increased emissions: more vehicles are equal to more noise and more pollutants.
• Noise when the bins are transported from the backyards to the vehicle (starting at 6 am in the morning), especially the empty bins
• Increase of CO2-emissions

3. Topic: SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY: "What kind of incentives can be created for a) residents and b) commuters in Berlin-Moabit (West) to make the use of bike-sharing systems in the quarter more attractive? // Welche Anreize können geschaffen werden um die Nutzung von Bike-Sharing im Quartier Moabit West für a) Anwohner und b) Pendler attraktiv zu machen? "

Details to follow soon.
