Throughout this semester, ten groups of students from over 20 schools of both Tsinghua and Peking University collaborated on the theme of "Urban Biodiversity". They transformed Tsinghua's iGarden, a horticultural education base, and Peking University's Weixiu Garden into habitat gardens. These endeavors were a testament to their understanding and desire for a low-carbon and sustainable lifestyle. During the competition, students explained the objectives behind their creations and the underlying principles guiding their renovations. At the event, Zheng Zhihong, a researcher at Tsinghua University’s Future Laboratory, gave a keynote speech titled "Interactivity and Inclusivity of Gardens."

Going forward, both universities will use these courses as a platform to guide research and space design practices. Through the courses, the universities will also collaboratively organize a series of long-term low-carbon and sustainable activities.
