ORGANIZERS: Earthship Biotecture Europe (aka Team Europe), which is a network consisting of:  Earthship Biotecture Sweden in close co-operation with Earthship Biotecture HQ, Earthship Biotecture Germany, Earthship Biotecture Portugal, Earthship Romania and Earthship Italy.

ABOUT THE EARTHSHIP LECTURE TOUR AN ORGANIZERS 

Earthship Biotecture Europe (aka Team Europe) was formed as a natural follow up step to an earlier 3-day Earthship workshop in Stockholm with Michael Reynolds, attended by people from all around Europe. Earthship Biotecture (EB) Portugal, EB Germany & Earthship Romania was started up, and the idea of a European Earthship Lecture Tour was born.

Earthships are self-sufficient buildings made from natural and recycled materials. These buildings heat and cool themselves, produce all their own electric power with solar and wind, harvest, treat and reuse their own water and have an integrated south-facing greenhouse for year around indoor food production.
