How we build matters! To meet the challenges of climate change new builds must be well insulated and made with natural, low impact materials that don’t produce lots of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gas emissions during the manufacturing process. 

Our sustainable building short courses provide a chance to get hands-on experience using natural materials, gain experience with ‘green building’ techniques, and improve your skills in a relaxed and supportive environment, with courses suitable for everyone from novice through to professional.
