RESILIENCE & REGENERATION
THE CENTRE OF RESILIENCE
COFOUNDED & DIRECTED BY PRASHANT KUMAR & BEN REID-HOWELLS
Bihar, North India, faces issues of poverty, unsustainable development and severe vulnerability to climate change. Over the course of eleven months with Prashant Kumar, we created a prototype for self-reliant, resilient housing and sustainable development: a house that cleans its own waste water, grows its own food, harnesses solar energy, and is made of a combination of resistant materials, upcycled waste, natural materials and traditional contruction methods.
The Bihar Centre for Resilient Livelihood is our effort to bring about a regional shift in Bihar towards revival of Indigenous practices, sustainable design and forms of livelihood that can withstand the challenges of climate change and social injustice. Through the Bihar Centre, Prashant will deliver trainings to regional workers to become social entrepreneurs, bringing sustainable economic development and regional network building to Bihar.
