Precise locations and dates to be determined.

Process

Passive House For Everyone facilitators provide a presentation on Passive House principles with contextual and building science framework of why Passive House is relevant to combating climate change and how this is achieved through Passive House building strategies.

Students then begin their explorations of the Passive House principles through song, dance, poems, drawings, models and more – wherever their expressive creative impulses lead them. PHFE facilitators then provide feedback to the students as they develop their ideas.

Once the projects are completed students document their work through video using simple tools like a cellphone. The projects are collected and PHFE facilitators assemble the works in a complete edited video that is shared among the school. The videos will then be shared at the national conference in Denver, a celebration of the students work and an inspiration to others.

Time Requirements

  • 45 min-3 hrs: The initial introductory presentation and workshop.
  • 3-4 weeks: The students develop their exploration in class time.
  • 2-3 weeks: Editing by PHFE facilitators
