It was great to see how each student considered many of the aspects of an autarkic in their project that classify the house as an off-grid house, like capturing renewable energy, harvest water, the use of isolation materials, and waste processing using composting.

The DNM was very satisfied with the invitation and the initiative of the teacher. They also encourage other schools and teachers to come up with similar projects which give the students the opportunity and freedom to search for information and come up with practical solutions for the many environmental challenges we face. This generation is living and seeing the challenges that were neglected by the previous generations.
