    Giess den Kiez (Pour the Neighborhood) is a Berlin-centred platform that aims to tackle the issue of arid and hot summers causing trees to dry and suffer long-term damage by encouraging citizens to adopt a tree and water it. The project is a coordinated effort to irrigate urban areas and enable citizen participation. On a map overview, dots represent trees, and a color-coding scheme indicates their water requirements.

    Website

    Offener Haushalt is a website that aims to make government spending more transparent by showing how much the state spends on which posts through graphical visualisations. The website incorporates budgetary data at the federal, state, and municipal level. As there is no specified format for these data, they often disappear behind government doors. This website opens up this information in open file formats.
