who what why The organization progettobarega.org was founded in September 2011 by the desire of a group of young professionals, in order to respond to the crisis situation of the territory of Sulcis and more generally of Sardinia. The aim is to create ideas and possibilities related to self-development of the territory through the rational and sustainable use of its tangible and intangible resources (local materials, know-how from the tradition revisited with modern technologies) minimizing the need to import materials. The main theme of the association is the revival of the local economy through the creation of local networks, synergies between people and companies who are looking for alternatives to traditional way of build (meant as building made of concrete, bricks, etc..) choosing the use and development of local materials with a low environmental and social cost of production impact. To show with informative workshop that there are techniques and technologies of green building with natural materials sourced locally, with a low-cost environmental impact and low waste of energy, is the first action of the association and is also one of the cornerstones of our activities. The association also aims to develop concepts which can be exported out of the island context, promoting a model replicable in other places, building a network community that shares concepts and know-how about eco-friendly building, sustainability, trough the participation and creation of new opportunities for a sustainable economic development.
