Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, the Urban Greenhouse Challenge had to cancel its Alternative Site visit event in Amsterdam. The good news is that they were able to translate the most important elements of this event into an on-line programme consisting of Online speed-dates event (2 April) and Masterclass - Urban Greenhouse Live Event 2020 (8 April).
