EMPOWERMENT OF VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES IN ECOLOGICAL CONSTRUCTION.

LET'S TALK

Ecological infrastructure

Community Integration Spaces

We operate programs for the empowerment of vulnerable communities in ecological construction. Infrastructure plays an especially important role in overcoming poverty; however, the costs of conventional building materials increase the gap in social inequality and prevent the use of the huge local resources such as land, sand, fibers and rubbish.

No poverty Reduced inequalities

Macro-stages of the process

Diagnosis of habitat

We conducted a preliminary study to determine community infrastructure needs, local resources, and the scalability potential of green building in the community.

Design and planning

According to the results of the diagnosis, we defined the space to be built (classrooms, cultural centers, community centers, etc.), we approve designs, plans and project planning.

Building with the community

From the hand of children, youth and adults, all together and guided by Pacto Planeta experts, we carry out the construction and materialization of the project.

Evaluation and monitoring

We follow up on new ecological infrastructure initiatives led by the same community and provide support in training and training.

Ecological building techniques depending on the type of habitat

Recycled elements | Natural Environment Materials

Construction with eco-bricks / Earthship technique

This technique allows building community spaces reusing PET bottles and plastic or metallized wrappers commonly used in Latin American households. For example, a class built with eco- bricks takes between 1.7 and 3 tons of solid waste, costs 50% less than traditional construction and its carbon footprint is lower in the range of 40% to 60%.

Let us transform the problem of garbage into a solution to social inequality!

LET'S TALK

Let's train communities in ecological infrastructure as an engine for social development!

LET'S TALK

Construction with soil

Soil made from sand, plant fibers and some types of organic material such as manure is the most environmentally friendly alternative for low-income communities. It allows building community spaces by taking advantage of local resources; ensures biodegradable structures by 60% or even 100% and accelerates community participation by being an easy-to- replicate technique with low maintenance costs.

Empowerment and capacity building

Community green building

Training the new generations in the planning and development of sustainable communities through low-cost ecological infrastructure represents a valuable strategy to combat the growing inequality gaps in Latin America.
