In April and May 2022, a mini-Tartu of fifty-five inhabitants gathered over two weekends to learn about the climate and sustainable mobility goals of Tartu, hear experts and stakeholder groups and deliberate on solutions. Sixty-six recommendations on calming traffic, creating more space
for pedestrians and bikers, as well as preserving and increasing biodiversity in Tartu were made to the town hall. The assembly was organised by the Green Tiger and Tartu town.
