You're right Max, and I like this variability.
Imagine a world, where everyone would do the same.
And I understand, that some networks spread their informations just in
I spent every working day (every day!) in my life 1-2 hours just to
answer questions about straw bale building in Austria (for free!).
This is the reason why we never thought about translating our website
But there is a lot of cooperation and there are a lot of
international, European projects,
where we work on an international level (in english), together with
nearly all European countries to improve the way we are building now.
Just that you are no part of that cooperations doesn't mean that it
And let me say, most of us do that work for free or sometimes get our
travels paid (EU Leonardo partnerships)
because we like straw bale building, like to spread the ways/
philosophy of community building and ecology
and the things we get back are (normally) not money but love,
friendship and recognition. Whats wrong about that?
This is the best motivation to do good things in the world:-)
all the best
