    Description

    My project is a project about to improve the water quality in cities and places where it needs a renaturation. The project is based on low tech & fair costs. We will research how to create a very low cost and simple system, which everybody can build by itselfe without big costs. Also to reuse the feces for energy. Also to create some tools for water cleaning systems for people who just wondering how easy it is to do something by yourselfe. Like a pedalo which is cleaning a little amount of water. With every step you pump a little amount of water up and filter it in a normal coffee filter. So you have a result of your trip and what you filtered meanwhile you step on the pedalo.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We will build rafts for the main location where the research center will be working in summer. We will be a lot on water with ships and we will make the beginning on my life task which is focused on a water cleaning system, which has to be founded from all of us. I will prefere to work one day long and have one day free, so can also have your own time in Berlin. Not to forget that Berlin is a big city. But in my case it is like you are in nature, when you are on the water.

    If you are interested to stay in Berlin in a nice flat with others who are working with you on a good nice project which is based on cleaning the water from rivers which are already changed by human, so you are right here. We will be a lot on water, where i live nearby. I have a small island and also some boats. If the weather is nice you can sleep in one of my places on water. My flat is nearby the island for bathroom using and shower. Also the room of my daughter is free for putting stuff inside or connecting to electricity. I need help especially in crafted work for building islands, promoting skills and webpage design would be helpful at first. Also sometimes in room or flatcleaning help is requiered.

    You will get a bed in bed at the island in a ship or a hut. Perhaps, i can give you a bike for the time you are here. When we meet we can cook once a day something together. For your food and drinks you have your own responsibility.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Best is if you can ride a bike, so Berlin will be perfectly explored. I know a lot of places and it can never get boring here. Of course you can also always use my boats on water. I will be happy if you stay minimum one month.
    I did some maker camps before in my life so i have some selection criteria like your age and practicability with tools or mind.
