Paper printable Passivhaus

BE-ST designed this printable paper Passivhaus for our Low Carbon Learning Next Gen Programme. Made for young learners, it serves as a fun, educational and hands-on introduction to Passivhaus principles.

Take part in our online learning module

BE-ST has launched a new online learning module to help young people better understand how alterations to existing buildings can save energy and money.

Targeted at 13–24-year-olds but useful to anyone who wants to better understand ‘fabric first principles.’ It will be of particular interest to those interested in construction careers or reducing our impact on the planet.

Clear and simple diagrams will lead you through the basics of the adaptions we can make to our existing houses to meet our net zero 2045 targets and some low-cost ideas for taking fabric first principles into your home today.
