Campus EcoSur

The Campus program fits within the commitment of the EcoSouth Network to lead the process of knowledge sharing about the construction sciences. Its first activity of forming human capacity in the area of EcoMaterials encompasses the theme of "Earth", another response to the interest expressed at EcoMaterials 2001 and the followup presented in the Earth Seminar in Havanna prior to EcoMaterials 2005. It is a course in Spanish open and with cost, directed toward students, professionals and those engaged in construction and has limited space for participants. A flyer concerning the course accompanies this summary.

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.
