The Dutch society of botanical gardens (NVBT) has submitted the 'twitter tree', developed by Waag, as a VOORbeeld project. From the longlist of ten projects that gathered the most points on 31 March, a jury of the Foundation VOOR will select three nominated projects. These projects have a chance to win 10.000 euro.
The NVBT would like to use the prize money from the VOORbeeld project to feed the tree with stories about living plants in the collection of the gardens. The tree will travel to all Dutch botanical gardens to get in touch with the visitors of the gardens.
