What are we building?

The Äerdschëff, the first public earthship-inspired building in the world, is a hub for social diversity and a showcase for a cultural transition to a low-impact world. Through this space open to all, we want to create social relationships within families, villages and the region, it is an educational centre focused on ecology, self-expression and diversity. Café-restaurant, cooperative games, creative weeks, workshops, courses and seminars, concerts, screenings, … This is a place destined to document, educate and research as well as to stimulate curiosity and creativity in order to develop and be able to share one’s own skills and knowledge.

Be a part of it! We are now getting ready for the first Phase of the construction of the Äerdschëff!
