Challenge

Fine art and crafts club is a non-profit established in the village of Mosorin. It has been raising awareness of richness of our local and traditional earthen building techniques and importance of protection of building crafts and their improvements. For many years they have been working on building Earth architecture center in the village of Mosorin as a place for training and education. The camp is going to bring together volunteers that will help build the center.

Solution

Volunteers will together with people from the center learn the earth architecture techniques and use them to help build Earth architecture center that will be local tourist and learning center and contribute to social life of the village in a sustainable manner.

Long-Term Impact

The project will promote sustainable building techniques and way of life, it will promote rural tourism in Serbia by bringing the volunteers in the village of Mosorin, and also improve social life in the village by bringing them an international volunteer summer camp. On the other hand the volunteers will have a chance to learn the earth architecture techniques from educated professionals and apply them.
