Nomadic School

Best Project of Building or Facility by Student

About the project
This project can help with social and ecological challenges encountered by the northern regions of Russia. 14.5 thousand indigenous people reside in the endless Arctic tundra – the nomads, whose lifestyle is upset by methane burps. Moreover, their boarding school tradition is bad for their culture, as children are separated from their families for a long time.
The author suggests building a portable research center close to methane burps and Nenets nomadic encampments – the locals will be able to get gas for their stoves here, leave their kids here for education, and then come to visit them.
