In this workshop we will construct together many different applications and we will deeply analyze in theory their possibilities. The seminar is aimed at those that wish to acquire knowledge both theoretical and practical, about renewable energy sources to meet workable alternatives to a personal and community level. Finally,  this workshop is immediately connected with the preparation and efforts that are talking place, for even more self-sufficiency and sustainability with low impact technologies and off greed systems for the Sriral Knights Eco-Fest 2017 at the Telethrion mountain from Free and Real. Part from the pedal power mixers for the smoothie bar and the solar ovens for the festivals kitchen the big idea is to create a mobile trailer which will be able to supply the festivals energy but also stay as a heritage for future events wherever that may be. More on this in the campaign we have started here . Some of the subjects that we will be dealing with: Biodigester construction. A biodigester operates as a kind of mechanical “stomach”. Fed with organic material, which then decomposed, creating biogas and valuable fertilizer. Off grid system sizing and calculations. Through this workshop we calculate our energy needs and consumption and then design from scratch the desirable system. Our scope is to gain a complete knowledge on various system components like wind/hydro turbines, solar panels, batteries, inverters and energy systems on theory and practice. Building a solar charger for mobile devices and tools A very useful and portable device, a solar charger can give life to a large range of gadgets such as laptops, cell phones, digital cameras etc. Upcycling old speakers to a portable Bluetooth sound system. We all have a pair of old speakers from an old hi-fi. Here we will learn how to get them a new life and build a portable, off grid Bluetooth sound-system with low cost, ideal for events, parties, etc. Building a solar panel. In this case, we will learn how we connect simple solar cells to make a functional and low cost solar panel. Building a solar water heater. The solar heat can be used for heating domestic hot water (DHW) and also can be used for space heating by preheating the water. In both cases it takes advantage of the solar radiation and therefore the use of it is for free. Solar thermal systems can cover from 10% -60% the needs of a house of heating and hot water, giving a corresponding saving in current oil , LPG, … etc.The solar heating systems can function in combination with any other of heating system* oil boiler, wood, biomass, gas, heat pump, etc.), whether in an existing heating system or due to new facility. Solar cooker and solar dehydrator Here we will see how to build a solar oven, a simple construction that can cook any food or boil water by using only solar energy and without the need of electricity. The solar radiation penetrates the glass and it’s been converted into heat which get trapped in the interior of the box by continuously increasing the temperature .The idea of drying is very old. The sun helps us to get rid of the liquid and the humidity of the foods we want to preserve. The solar dehydrators Are made of two parts. At one part...

Something similar takes place at the mental and sensory level. That is because thai massage is mainly a mental practice , meditation through motion… It is connected with the word metta which derives from Pali language(Ancient Buddhist language)and means loving kindness. Thai massage teaches to givers and receivers empathy , “presence” , offering. And when we release ourselves in heart space and the veils of separation cast away from our core value – we are unique in our own way – compassion… The treatment this planet needs to be cured. Melina Gale Nicknamed “the monkey” as a child, had you met a young Melina she most likely would have been hanging from a tree or doing flips on the playground. Fast forward to the present and not much has changed, the only difference is the tree is now an aerial hammock and the playground is now her mat. After 15 years of practicing yoga on and off, chronic stress from the pressure of owning her own business drove Melina to finally take yoga seriously. Within weeks of a consistent yoga practice most of her symptoms were gone, and she instantly knew it was her path to share the healing benefits of yoga with the world. In 2014 Melina completed her Ashtanga Vinyasa 200hr teacher training with The Yoga People ( Jamie Clark & Dulce Aguilar) at All Yoga Thailand. Always remaining a student at heart, Melina has gone on to further her studies by completing Aerial Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, and Yin yoga teacher trainings.

Fed with organic material, which then decomposed, creating biogas and valuable fertilizer. Off grid system sizing and calculations. Through this workshop we calculate our energy needs and consumption and then design from scratch the desirable system. Our scope is to gain a complete knowledge on various system components like wind/hydro turbines, solar panels, batteries, inverters and energy systems on theory and practice. Building a solar charger for mobile devices and tools A very useful and portable device, a solar charger can give life to a large range of gadgets such as laptops, cell phones, digital cameras etc. Upcycling old speakers to a portable Bluetooth sound system. We all have a pair of old speakers from an old hi-fi. Here we will learn how to get them a new life and build a portable, off grid Bluetooth sound-system with low cost, ideal for events, parties, etc. Building a solar panel. In this case, we will learn how we connect simple solar cells to make a functional and low cost solar panel. Building a solar water heater. The solar heat can be used for heating domestic hot water (DHW) and also can be used for space heating by preheating the water. In both cases it takes advantage of the solar radiation and therefore the use of it is for free. Solar thermal systems can cover from 10% -60% the needs of a house of heating and hot water, giving a corresponding saving in current oil , LPG, … etc.The solar heating systems can function in combination with any other of heating system* oil boiler, wood, biomass, gas, heat pump, etc.), whether in an existing heating system or due to new facility. Solar cooker and solar dehydrator Here we will see how to build a solar oven, a simple construction that can cook any food or boil water by using only solar energy and without the need of electricity. The solar radiation penetrates the glass and it’s been converted into heat which get trapped in the interior of the box by continuously increasing the temperature .The idea of drying is very old. The sun helps us to get rid of the liquid and the humidity of the foods we want to preserve. The solar dehydrators Are made of two parts. At one part happens the “collection” of solar radiation which heats the air and the other part is the food which we want to dry. Solar air heater This construction will consist an autonomous solar air heater with an integrated solar panels. Every time there is sun, the radiation passes through the transparent cover and the special absorber heats the fresh air in the collector. The outside air has already been filtered before it enters your site. Pedal power and retrofitting an old washing machine And other types of kinetic energy. The basic idea is to use a bicycle e as an energy source , and...

Το εργαστήριο θα ξεκινήσει το απόγευμα της Παρασκευής 9 Δεκεμβρίου και θα ολοκληρωθεί την Κυριακή 11 Δεκεμβρίου. Χορτοφάγος; Θου Κύριε! αν δεν είναι κρέας δεν είναι φαΐ. Σαν χορτοφάγος πολλές φορές μου συνέβη να έρθω αντιμέτωπη με αυτή τη φράση. Είναι αλήθεια ότι η πλειοψηφία θα ισχυριζόταν ότι μια χορτοφαγική διατροφή είναι ελλιπής, ανορθόδοξη και γενικότερα.. ακραία περίπτωση. Από την άλλη πλευρά, εδώ και δεκαετίες οι επιστήμονες επισημαίνουν πως η μείωση της κατανάλωσης κρέατος επιφέρει μείωση στον κίνδυνο ανάπτυξης καρκίνου, παχυσαρκίας, δυσλιπιδαιμιών, υπέρτασης, νευρολογικών διαταραχών, κατάθλιψης, μείωση νοητικής λειτουργίας και οι έρευνες πάνω στο θέμα φαίνεται να μην έχουν τελειωμό. Άλλωστε, σαν λαός, θα έπρεπε να είμαστε περήφανοι για τα χορτοφαγικά μας γεύματα, που μας κατέταξαν στο παρελθόν στις πρώτες θέσεις τον μακροβιότερων λαών. Δυστυχώς όμως, κάπου χαμένοι στη μετάφραση υιοθετήσαμε κι εμείς δυτικά πρότυπα έχοντας σαν πρώτη επιλογή το κρέας και τα παράγωγά του. Ήρθε λοιπόν η στιγμή να δούμε περί τίνος πρόκειται και για ποιο λόγο είναι ανάγκη -αν όχι η αποχή- η μείωση της κατανάλωσης κρέατος.
