One of the presentations of PechaKucha was about the project SARCH – social sustainable architecture. It’s about letting European aechitecture students build public buildings like schools, libraries, … together with the local residents. The claim is: “build together learn together”, both parties learn about and from each other.
I find it quite interesting and ambitious, though it has no direct connection with ICT4D. After PechaKucha I talked to the initiator of the project – Christoph Chorherr – and he also mentioned that WLAN is planned for one of their schools. Another connected project is ITHUBA.
Check it out, it’s an example what few motivated people can do.
