To our Sponsors, Speakers and Attendees from more than 15 countries who made the 2012 ISBC a smashing success ...

Thank You


The mission of the 2012 ISBC was to foster the development, improvement, education and positive impacts of straw building and related sustainable building approaches. The international nature of the conference supported the critical exchange of valuable and diverse viewpoints and experiences and enhanced the opportunities for networking. And we intended on having a lot of fun.

Mission Accomplished!
