Marcin Jakubowski and The Global Village Construction Set
An enormous, earth-changing opportunity awaits.
Visionary, designer, builder, founder of Open Source Ecology, Marcin Jackobowski
will discuss his Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) - low cost tools for skills
based, eco-agricultural community building, on Saturday, January 8, at 7:30 pm. This
talk will be held in the AJ Lewis Center (AJLC) Environmental Studies Building, 122
Elm Street, Oberlin, Ohio.
(Ending time has been approximated for the purposes of this event announcement.)
In addition, Marcin is interested in “finding supportive Subject Matter Experts -
in areas of solar concentrator energy, metallurgy, power electronics, appropriate
technology agriculture equipment, CNC machining, induction furnace .... Subject
Matter Experts who could help the Global Village Construction Set project.” Those
individuals interested is collaborating with the project in some way should attend a
special session that Saturday at 2 pm in Room 102 in AJLC. Please RSVP to Avi Miner,
email@example.com, or Glenn Gall, firstname.lastname@example.org .
The GVCS is a set of 40 different machines that it takes to build a Small scale
civilization with modern day comforts.... like a life-sized Lego set. These include
the Liberator - a Compressed Earth Brick Machine (CEB), capable of making thousands
of stackable, large, earth bricks per day, and Micro-trac (small-scale) and
“Imagine a village with buildings of dirt (CEB) with year-round greenhouses
(sawmill, CEB, bioplastics from local trees), with all facility energy produced by a
solar turbine, where people drive hybrid cars with car bodies (bioplastics) made
from local weeds, with critical motors and metal structures (aluminum) extracted
from on-site clay, which are fueled by alcohol produced on-site, on a wireless
network linked to the greater world. That's just a sampling of the technology base.
Food, energy, housing sufficiency. There are no poor among us - because we are all
evolving human beings and farmer scientist
