Hi Owen, We have participated at NEA competition and our Earthbag design won an award of the most popular design by public choice.
The prime minister of Nepal stopped by our stand and we had a short time to tell him about Earthbag technology and even give him your book:) We have received the award from the PM himself:). See photos attached.
After the competition, there was an exhibition that lasted for 4 days and still going on. Our Earthbag stand drew lots of traffic. We collected hundreds of emails of people who are interested in our training. Most of them are engineering students.”
