Habitat

Habitat is a new system of a public green-space which allows city-dwellers in the Global South to escape the hustle and bustle of their environment.

Because faith plays a major role in the Global South and is considered a first need, Habitat seeks to grow an awareness of the traditional connections between faith and nature by re-establishing them in a new way. People who seek a space for prayer, meditation or rest can find a small oasis within the busyness of the city. The app helps the users to locate them easily and to verify their availability. The service also indicates the environmental qualities of the spaces, such as noise levels. Thus, Habitat aims to simultaneously raise the enjoyment of the users’ prayer-times and nature and hence, encourage great care in the interaction with both.
