Workshops & Seminars

Workshops are a very intrinsic part of Purvai. These are the times when we actually learn things to be used. In past, we have learned about earthquake resistant techniques, mud brick construction, earth bag construction, sustainable environments, bamboo architecture and techniques, natural building materials, hilly area settlements and organic farming. Learn more about previous workshops here.

Purvai’18 will include Earth Bricks and Reconstruction Implications in Nepal, Poverty Alleviation & Livelihood in Himalayas & Bamboo Workshop in Madhubani.

Anjan Mitra, Mr. Mark Moore, Prof. A. K. Singh & Ar. Pem Gyaltsen for discussions.
