Energy Mastercourse @ Telethrion

...For The English Translation Please Press Here Free and Real is hosting in the premise of the Telaithrion Project, in cooperation with SEYN (Sustainable Energy Youth Network) a ten day practical and theoretical workshop in Northern Euboea about: Low Impact Technologies, (DIY), Renewable Energy Recourses and intro to the Telaithrion Project The Workshop will Start on Friday 23 of June and it will conclude on Sunday 2nd of July Deep into the waters of renewable sources of energy, DIY/DIT applications and low impact technologies, we will dive for this ten days extensive workshop with the valuable help of SEYN and Alexandros Filippidis. 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...

Nutrition @ Telethrion

Το Free and Real στα πλαίσια της δημιουργίας του σχολείου αυτάρκειας και βιωσιμότητας του εγχειρήματος Τελαίθριον διοργανώνει ακόμη ένα πρακτικό και θεωρητικό εργαστήριο με θέμα: Εργαστήριο αυτάρκειας, παραδοσιακής διατροφής, χορτοφαγίας και ιαματικά λουτρά Στον κόσμο της χορτοφαγικής μαγειρικής, τον συνδυασμό τροφών, των προϊόντων ζύμωσης και της άρτιας διατροφής, σε συνεργασία με την Σοφία Κανέλλου θα μπούμε μαζί σας για αυτό το τριήμερο. 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. ΣΤΟ ΘΕΩΡΗΤΙΚΟ ΣΕΜΙΝΑΡΙΟ ΘΑ ΕΞΕΤΑΣΟΥΜΕ ΤΑ ΕΞΗΣ ΣΗΜΕΙΑ… ΚΑΙ ΟΧΙ ΤΕΡΑΤΑ: 1. με ποια είναι τα τρόφιμα μπορώ να αντικαταστήσω το κρέας; 2. ποια είναι τα οφέλη μιας διατροφής βασισμένης σε φυτικές πηγές θρεπτικών συστατικών 3. συνδυασμοί τροφών 4. οικολογία- βιολογική καλλιέργεια 5. τροφή σαν πρόληψη και σαν θεραπεία 6. ισορροπημένες συνταγές και συμβουλές μαγειρικής για την μέγιστη αξιοποίηση των τροφών 7.B12 μύθοι και αλήθειες...

Με συμμετοχή 25 νέων ανθρώπων από ολόκληρη την Ευρώπη του SEYN θα συζητήσουμε κοινές δράσεις και θα εξετάσουμε την εφαρμογή νέων εναλλακτικών ανανεώσιμων πηγών ενέργειας, αλλά και εφαρμογές ήπιας τεχνολογίας. SEYN’s Take on the General Assembly Επίσης στις ημέρες τις διοργάνωσης θα γίνουν εργαστήρια πάνω στα ίδια θέματα, αλλά και πλήρης περιήγηση και αναλυτική παρουσίαση του Εγχειρήματος Τελαίθριον.  Η συνέλευση γίνετε με την συνεργασία του HBS Europe και του HBS Greece. Αναμένουμε όλο τον υπέροχο κόσμο του SEYN και είμαστε σίγουροι για μία υπέροχη εμπειρία και συνεργασία! Alexandros Filippidis: “In few days, 25 SEYNers and prospect members from Greece, Portugal, Croatia, Italy, Scotland, UK, Belgium and Netherlands will come together for SEYN’s 1st General Assembly, ready to set targets and strategies for 2017, while reviewing the last 1,5 year journey. An interesting journey with ups and downs, carrying valuable lessons for everyone. The gathering will take place at FreeandReal community in Evia, Greece between 2-6 Dec, as part of our continuous support and solidarity to South Europe and not only. On behalf of SEYN – Sustainable Energy Youth Network we would like to thank Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung Europe and HBS Greece for the crucial support in our previous Academies and our Assembly. We do hope that SEYN with your support, the SEYN community, will reach soon true sustainability and support more and more people to realize community projects beyond borders, educate and get educated, collaborate and cooperate, connect and inspire, build together a strong, resilient, balanced and inclusive future. Every journey begins with a single step and no matter how rough it may be, you need to keep walking. On behalf of SEYN, thank you all for your support and see you in Telethrion (and more Telethrions in the near future).
