We have been jointly awarded 6.3m euros to increase the uses of low carbon technologies across Europe in sectors with high energy saving potential.
This is a very exciting state of affairs! However, to participate, we have to find 40% matching funding. In our case this is £188k over the duration of the project i.e. 42 months.
So we’re looking for help. We need money for:
- Expert help
- Venues & accommodation
In the first year we need £34,512k. In the second year we need £53,248 and in the 3rd and 4th years we need £65,500 & £34,698 respectively.
In return for your help with this exciting trans-national straw building project, we can:
- Put your logo on all project materials, which means you will gain publicity in France, Belgium, Holland and Germany as well as across the UK
- Provide you with a free place on our theoretical courses (a suite of 4 x 1 day courses) and on a practical build (5 days long)
- Send you a free signed copy of Barb’s new book Building with Straw Bales
- Give you a School of Natural Building T Shirt (SNaB) – they’re really cool
- If you are in a position to donate ‘big’ money we can host an away day for your staff based on the principles of strawbale building, SNaB – style
To discuss how to contribute, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be delighted to tell you more.
Please help us make this project happen. We’re so close to a ‘natural building first’ for the UK.
