Here are a few projects that I have been involved with, always as part of a team. I will do my best to explain what role I have played in each.
Build-your own Eco-friendly classroom
Role: project conceiver, manager, site designer, photographer
A cross-disciplinary group of young staff members and I won a grant of $11,000 through the Youth Innovation Fund award, of the World Bank Insitute, to develop awiki platform for eco-friendly building techniques for classrooms.
We recorded the construction of our prototype in Huixquilucan, Mexico, step by step, to accrue tutorials for communities world-wide to be able to replicate the project. The wiki, which will be launched in English and Spanish at the end of September, is meant to empower communities to help themselves by sharing data and practices rather than depend on external aid. The project was showcased among the most innovative projects at the World Bank this year.
We hope to begin a community of eco-building practitioners, parents, students and whomever wants a classroom to be able to create one by following the tutorials.
