Inspiring story in Hungary



In Nyíregyháza, in northeast Hungary, a community of 500 households are sharing their skills and experience to build new energy-efficient houses. The homes, which are being made out of straw bales, are extremely energy efficient – helping to fight climate change and reduce energy bills.

By the end of 2015, with help from Energy and Environment Foundation and an expert team of architects, the community plans to have finished 1,000 new houses in the area. This initiative has been made possible by combining environmental and traditional knowledge, and promotes local economic development and energy independence through community action.
