We recognize the current and pressing nature of the Syrian refugee crisis. The German Prime Minister has stated, “If Germany can’t show a friendly face in an emergency situation, then this is not my country.”

We are proposing/planning a small city prototype that is the campus of an International Earthship Academy that teaches Syrians (alongside Europeans) how to build a city for themselves while at the same time demonstrating to all of Europe and the world a sustainable approach to living that uses no infrastructure and no fuel. We all know this is possible. The Earthship concept and the Earthship Army are now powerful and experienced enough to do this…

The game plan is evolving as we speak.

We are looking for a building site of 500-1000 acres in size, corporate sponsorship, materials donations, university and NGO partnerships and we are open to any suggestions that could help further this endeavor.

For more information on how to become involved in materials acquisition, land acquisition, donations, or participation in the build please use the form below. Kindly address your communication to the appropriate person.

“If all the soldiers
in all the armies
in all the world
put down their weapons
and picked up tools
and started building sustainable/carbon zero housing
for all the people of the world
our problems would be over
and real life for all people
would begin.”

-Michael Reynolds


لو كل الجيوش
في كل العالم
وضع أسلحتهم
والتقطت أدوات
وبدأ بناء المستدام / الكربون الصفر الإسكان
لجميع شعوب العالم
أن مشاكلنا قد انتهت
و اقع الحياة لجميع الناس
ستبدأ " .
-مايكل رينولدز


“Wenn alle Soldaten
aus allen Armeen dieser Welt
ihre Waffen streckten
und Werkzeuge in die Hand nähmen
um umweltfreundliche / emissionsarme 
Häuser für alle Völker dieser Welt zu bauen
würden sich alle unsere Probleme lösen
und alle Menschen könnten ihr 
wahres Leben anfangen.”
Michael Reynolds
