when: July 30 – Aug 1. straw bale house tours: Aug. 2 (/3)

how: presentations from 16:00-22:00, workshops and/or exhibitions on Sat/Sun from 10:00-16:00

about: presentations: each country (national network) prepares a 30min presentation on YouTube (make it private now), which will be screened as event on the certain time/date in the program, this presentation should include the news from the last two years and the progress in your organisation. We will make templates on CANVA, where you can design and record your presentation as well as integrating any videos you may have. 2 people of your organisation should answer questions (collected from ESBA presenters via YouTube and social networks). The presentations from all countries should be screened in public (in or outside, just think of the light in summer)

workshops: you are completely free with what you train there, straw, earth, games, … it is more about coming together and speak with trainers, representatives of your organisation. It can also be just an exhibition and a speakers corner. Or music and good food.

who: According to our last ESBA meeting, these countries will contribute to the ESBG in 2021:
Austria (asbn, vivihouse, sonnenklee), the Netherlands (SBN), Denmark (LØB, Dansk Center for Halmbyggeri), UK (SBUK, Phil, Cypren,) Estonia (Eestimaaehitus, Mikk and Sven), Poland (OSBN), ev. Slovakia (in coop with Austria?), most probably RFCP
