PflanzMit allows citizens to report potential or existing green spaces. In cooperation with cities and municipalities, areas can be marked as released/approved for use. Within the framework of previously defined conditions of use, users can plant the area without paying. For this purpose, areas can be reported at any time from the app and the coordinates are determined and noted via GPS. Conversely, PflanzMit also allows users to find known urban green spaces using a city map.
PflanzMit allows users to join individual green spaces and thus form a group of people who join together and exchange information on the maintenance of one or more urban green spaces. A messaging system allows group-related content to be shared.
The app provides support for collaborative urban green care through shared calendars and through tools for sharing and taking ownership, as well as through digital "bulletin boards" within groups.
As additional support to collaborative urban green care, PflanzMit will actively make suggestions to groups about which plantings are most appropriate and which they can improve urban green care. These suggestions will be selected using a modern AI (artificial intelligence) approach and will take into account factors such as climate zone, the behavior of other groups, current weather forecasts, and the location/position of the green space.
