Crowdfunding finished
The concept of the association is the establishment of a cultural and educational centre in Werbig in a yurt village. The yurt, which is made of wood following the mongolian example and based on hermetical geometry, is a unique, round, ecological and sustainable room. It is an oasis of calm which will be integrated into the Brandenburg nature, for example by greening the roof. Here, visitors, families and school classes will find a special place with exciting cultural offers.

Project description show hide

What is this project all about?

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.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

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.

Why would you support this project?

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.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

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.
