Low Tech Lab

Low-tech solutions prioritize simplicity, sustainability, and affordability, making them an ideal fit for the Äerdschëff project’s vision of resource-efficient and resilient living. In this training, we will dive into the principles and practices of low-tech innovation.

We will begin by introducing the concept of low-tech and its potential to address environmental challenges. You will learn about the guiding principles of low-tech, such as using readily available materials, minimizing energy consumption, and promoting self-sufficiency. Through interactive discussions and case studies, you will gain a deeper understanding of how low-tech solutions can be applied in various contexts.

The training will then move on to practical hands-on activities. You will have the opportunity to work on different low-tech projects, such as building simple solar cookers, constructing water filters, designing low-cost irrigation systems, or creating alternative energy sources. These projects will foster creativity, problem-solving skills, and a sense of empowerment as you witness the impact of low-tech solutions firsthand.

Throughout the session, you will also explore the importance of adapting and contextualizing low-tech solutions to specific needs and environments. You will learn how to assess local resources and apply appropriate technologies that can improve living conditions and promote sustainability within the Äerdschëff project.

Additionally, the training will foster a mindset of collaboration and knowledge sharing. You will have the opportunity to exchange ideas, share experiences, and work in teams to brainstorm innovative low-tech solutions for real-life challenges. By engaging in group discussions and collaborative projects, you will develop teamwork skills and learn from the diverse perspectives of your peers.

By the end of the training, you will possess a solid foundation in low-tech principles and practices. You will have hands-on experience with various low-tech projects and the ability to think creatively and critically about sustainable solutions. You will leave the training equipped with the knowledge and skills to continue exploring and implementing low-tech innovations in your own life and within the Äerdschëff project.
