Instructor: Sascha Delz

CONNECT(ION) IS A MEMBER BASED CO-OPERATIVE WITH THE INTENTION OF ADDRESSING TWO VERY BIG ISSUES THAT SOCIETY FACES TODAY. THE FIRST OF THESE ISSUES IS CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE INCREASED USE OF NONRENEWABLE ENERGY THAT IS UNSUSTAINABLY POLLUTING THE ENVIRONMENT WE LIVE IN. THE SECOND ISSUE IS GENTRIFICATION, MORE SPECIFICALLY, THE DISPLACEMENT OF PEOPLE FROM THEIR COMMUNITIES BECAUSE OF THE RISING LOCAL COSTS OF LIVING. CONNECTION BRIDGES THESE TWO GLOBAL ISSUES WITH THE USE OF SUSTAINABLE BUILDING TECHNOLOGIES AND SUSTAINABLE METHODS OF PRODUCING ENERGY. THE GOAL IS TO GIVE THE COMMUNITY MEMBERS ENERGY INDEPENDENCE WHILE AT THE SAME TIME CREATE SUBSIDIES FOR LOWER INCOME MEMBERS SO THAT THEY ARE NOT DISPLACED FROM THEIR COMMUNITIES.
