Students in the 10th grade from Kyustendil, who successfully completed the "Future of Cities and Villages" training, have won the WWF-Bulgaria "Panda Labs" grand prize. Panda Labs is a program for young people who have the ambition to create inspiring solutions to overcome serious environmental and social challenges.

The winners presented an idea that could reduce heat waves and make cities more beautiful and cozy places to live by building vertical gardens on residential buildings. The team won funding of about 3500 euros for initial tests of their idea and creation of a prototype that could inspire many young people to follow suit.

Several other teams comprised of young people aged 15 to 25 from different cities of the country reached the finals of Panda Labs. During the initiative, participants went through a series of training modules to help them develop their ideas.
