Rammed Earth In Germany

We get more queries from South Korea, South Africa, Italy, Brazil, Mexico and Thailand than we do from Germany.

That seemed odd because all Germans speak english perfectly and are way ahead of the eco-curve, so why no questions about this groovy and traditional building method?

They have no questions, because they have the answers, and now they want YOUR answers too!

The Dachverband Lehm e.V. extends an open invitation to all interested professional colleagues to submit thematic relevant contributions and papers for the LEHM 2008 conference as well as for a poster session which will be exhibited parallel to the conference. The theme of the conference programme will include the following subject areas:

1.Earth building norms and regulations
2.Education and training in
earth building
3.Current research into building with earth
networks in earth building
5.Current problems in earthen building practice
6.New projects and exemplary conversions forum

Candidates wishing to present a paper or poster at the conference should submit a short overview (abstract) of not more than 500 words with title and name of the author. Submissions can be in German or English.

I wonder which of our North American Experts will be presenting papers at this event?
