4BsHive: First Study Visit - October in Bristol

In late October 17 participants from Germany, Hungary and Romania came to Knowle West for four days of activities around green mapping. An intense, enjoyable and productive time was had by all. Both this and the Partner's meeting in Berlin in September were filmed by Bjela Pro├čowsky from the Berlin team. As soon as they are available we'll post the videos up here. For more on the project: 4BsHive.
