Research and Experimentation
Research and experimentation help us to understand life
As well our homes are part of the Experiment
For example, the community of Aval was designed and built by Damanhurian professionals as a model of a "passive house," where we live, work and raise children every day, according to a criteria that combines technology, respect for the environmental and the well-being of those who live there.
All of the residences in the Tentyris area have come about experimentally by "inventing" systems not only to retrofit old houses, but to bring in water, electricity and sanitation services without waiting for the local municipality to do it for us.
Other examples of Damanhurian research that has been applied to environmental conservation are the acres of forest land converted from a thicket of small trees to taller ones, and the biodiversity reintroduced after studies on the flora of the groundcover, and many experiments in organic agriculture and permaculture.
