We are Domenic, Ute and Nina and together we are Team GTG. The name stands for Go Turn Green and thus has a strong connection to SDG 15 – Life on Land. We are looking forward to the challenge of the coming months and hope that we will learn a lot for ourselves and are excited about the solution we will come up with.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
GTG: Design Freeze & High-Fidelity Prototype of ReNate
During the past weeks, things got intense as we had to prepare for the design freeze of our idea. This means that we had to make decisions about the size, form, material, and instruments used in our final product. We have spent a lot of time developing all the details...
GTG: Proposed Project Direction
Problem space One of the main goals of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal Life on Land, is to restore ecosystems and reverse land degradation. In Germany exist antropogenic overprinted landscapes. These landscapes do not provide a habitat for animals. On...
GTG: Idea Audit
Idea Audit As we mentioned in our last blog entries, the visit to CERN gave us a fresh perspective and allowed us to come up with more ideas - ideas that we thought are some of our best ones yet. The presence of experienced moderators and professionals allowed us to...
GTG: Idea Bank & Festival Reflection
“Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.” – Erich Fromm The Exploration Festival lasted 6 weeks and allowed us to exchange ideas with the Teaching Team from Design Factory Melbourne, IdeaSquare CERN, and inno.space Mannheim and Team Ekopais and Team...
GTG: Local Opportunity Areas
"The world is big, the world´s problems are even bigger" - Kirstin Kohler This is exactly how we felt when the first step was to find out exactly how large the problem area is for Sustainable Development Goal 15 - Life on Land.But first things first, what exactly does...
We are Team GTG, consisting of the team members Ute Grünbaum, Domenic Gosein and Nina Dreher. GTG stands for Go Turn Green and is made up of parts of our last names translated into English (Gosein - Go, Dreher - Turn, Grünbaum - Green).With our team name we wanted to...
After completing his apprenticeship as an IT-System administrator Domenic has spent one year working in Mexico for the same medium-sized automotive supplier, with whom he did his apprenticeship. He then returned to Germany to do his Bachelors’s degree in business informatics in a dual study program with one of the big four audit companies.
Currently, Domenic is studying Computer Science at the Hochschule Mannheim in order to get his Masters’s degree, while working as a Cloud Engineer.
Ute Grünebaum (24) has a bachelor’s degree in chemical technology and is studying process- and chemical engineering at Mannheim University of Applied Sciences. She has always been interested in scientific journalism and hopes to get an insight into this field in this project.
In her free time, she reads a lot and likes to do sports.
