We will live in harmony with the climate

The structure of the subject


We will learn about:

– Correct use of tools, machine tools – including safety.

– Knowledge of sustainable building materials.

– Knowledge of establishing low-tech heat and energy sources.

– Solar cells and battery systems

– Collection of drinking water
knowledge of the off-grid tank.


We build smaller structures
– for example: a rocket stove, a mud toilet, an outdoor shower, a mobile chicken coop and a shelter. With all these experiences and skills, you can go ahead with larger projects yourself in the future.


We examine what a life “off-the-grid” really is.

How do we create sustainable houses and households that become part of the solution to today’s climate challenges?

How do we think outside the box to find ways that have both appeal and impact in the real world?

The subject emphasizes desire, responsibility and community, and we cultivate the ability to dream and realize one’s own and the community’s visions.
