With the first funding target, together with our own share and a sponsorship, we will be able to finance the centrepiece of the yurt village.
The concept of the association is the establishment of a cultural and educational centre in Werbig in a yurt village. For this purpose, we want to build a 40 square metres yurt for the association to realise cultural workshops here. We were wondering how we could create spaces that are ecologically sustainable and blend in well with nature. In Austria we met architect Hans Georg, who builds the living yurts and we participated in one of his yurt workshops. We were immediately convinced by the concept.
From an own experience we know that the trend towards a conscious and sustainable lifestyle in today’s society is becoming more and more important. Therefore, we offer in our yurts workshops for a healthier lifestyle that counteract burn out and stress. In our yurts the body shall slow down and recover. We want to contribute to more intercultural exchange, to tolerance and acceptance being promoted.
Everyone who wants to contribute to cultural education, culture, exchange, music and happiness taking place should support the project. Furthermore, you support the creation of community-oriented, local offers as well as educational activities for all age groups. You support the construction with ecological, sustainable features and with renewable raw materials. Also, you are very welcome to visit us and to participate in the workshops.
Upon successful financing we will be able, together with our own share, to finance the centrepiece of the yurt complex and to build the yurts.
