The “Boulouki” organization – Travelling Workshop on Traditional Building Techniques – is among this year’s winners of the European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards. These awards are presented by the European Commission and Europa Nostra. Boulouki was awarded for its exemplary work in the “Education, Training & Skills” category.

Our association collaborates with Boulouki (as well as with the organizations MedINA and WWF and the Municipality of Ios) on the Med-RESET project for the construction of micro-dams on Ios. We are very happy that one of the organizations we work with has received this important distinction.

The purpose of Boulouki is to revive traditional knowledge regarding building techniques and materials. Its vision is to develop a new building culture in Greece and internationally, which strongly draws from traditional knowledge and aims for modern, sustainable construction.

The award recognizes the excellent work that Boulouki is doing to preserve our cultural heritage, at a time when it is under threat. The relevant announcement can be found at the link:
