Profesor Gernot Minke of the University of Kassel, who has  wide experience with “green roofs”, showed much interest in an investigation of a young engineer on this topic when he visited the poster exhibition on Tuesday.  This poster presented by Tamara Santana of the CUJAE, who has been investigating green roofs since 1998, showed their application in Cuba.Minke asked about different aspects of the design and application, but it was colleagues of Tamara who responded, as she just had a child in October.

In 2005, SofoNic has started a dual education program for masons in Nicaragua, using its house-building programs as a base. Teaming up with the local technical school in Jinotepe they are graduating about ten masons every year since. Most f them have found jobs in construction or have started a business on their own. SofoNic has contracted several of them as master masons in the reconstruction programs in Haiti.
