From August 18th to September 12th (4 weeks)
Be part of a hands-on community workshop In Portugal where an old stone building (ruin) will be turned into a new, fully self-sustainable building.
This will be a great educational opportunity especially for those who seek to learn how to transform & re-design (Retrofit!) any existing building into a fully self-sustainable building.
By learning how to apply the six core principles of the Earthship concept, any existing structure can be retrofitted into a self-sustainable building.
“Retrofitting refers to the addition of new technology or features to older systems.” – Wikipedia Read More
This spring Michael Reynolds will be hosting a series of lectures about Earthships in multiple cities around Europe.
This is an effort to share 40 years of research and development on self-sufficient housing with the masses.
The lectures are structured as a 1-day seminar in each European city (see dates below). Many concepts and issues within sustainability will be discussed but the main focus is on the concepts of Biotecture and the six core principals of the Earthship model.
