"Alternative material for sustainable construction"   

Lorena Nolte, a Peruvian architect with a global presence, engages in diverse architectural projects, product design, ephemeral installations, university teaching, and workshops with bamboo communities. She underscores the significance of utilizing local materials in architecture, which led her to discover and develop a passion for bamboo.

"The laws of nature generate movement, rhythms, tensions, and forces, which manifest in architecture and are mirrored in human behavior."

In 2010, Lorena, along with her working partner, was awarded the International Design Prize in China for their bamboo sandals.

Kjell Tahon has a broad international experience in socio-economic agricultural projects in Africa and Europe. As the general manager and shareholder of BAMBOOLOGIC, a Dutch company partnered with Hive Energy, he will explore with us whether bamboo can be a rewarding and sustainable alternative for the transitioning European agricultural sector. It may address various ecosystem issues such as carbon sequestration, regenerating degraded land, erosion prevention, retaining water in the soil's top layer, and extracting toxins from the soil.  


"Our goal is to plant thousands of hectares of bamboo in Europe over the next two years and remove about 1,000,000 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere."
