Este es un portal para Demotech, diseño para la autosuficiencia y nuestra invitación a participar.
Las iniciativas de diseño de Demotech apuntan a " Más alegría por persona ". La vida tiene más que ofrecer de lo que cualquier consumidor promete. La reducción de tecnología y, en consecuencia, la economía, pueden ir acompañadas de la elevación de su calidad. Se puede tener mucha más comodidad y tiempo libre si solo rediseñamos la tecnología de acuerdo con las pautas técnicas apropiadas. No significa que esto sea fácil. Pero -sí- lo que significa que se puede hacer fácilmente en un enfoque colaborativo de código abierto . Hay muchos ejemplos que marcan el camino, pero -no- aún queda por materializarse ese esfuerzo conjunto de cultura colaborativa.

Redesign, el espacio de diseño que ofrece soluciones sostenibles
Demotech's contribution consists of technical research into ultra low cost and truly sustainable technical solutions. Next to this, Demotech centers on how to get the story about such solutions across to an unwilling world, without hope or expectations that such solutions do- respectively can exist.
Listen and Learn, contacting a new reality
In search of an enjoyable sustainable world, Demotech wants to draw lessons from people living in poverty. "Learning from Poverty" is the shortcut towards a sustainable society.
Think and Write, structuring new thoughts
The proper study of the positive aspects of life in poverty that fit into the "Technology within Poverty" proves to be inspiring. To start re-design at the economic level of poverty gives the realistic framework for sustainability. Demotech found numerous options for this approach and has succeeded to get one generally accepted. We listed similar successes elsewhere. Designs that assist these targets can be found in this group. Demotech, design for self-reliance is a Netherlands based foundation, dedicated to Appropriate technology.
Demotech's categories of designs
Means to get informed
Empowering people to transmit their ideas to others in demonstrations or exhibitions. To make construction manuals for designs easy to use, but also easy to make. Means for studying. Aids to run a project.
Making made easier
Practical tricks, handy aids and small tools that help to make things in a faster, and generally more efficient way. Many of the Demotech designs make good use of such tools or working methods.
Better living is about raising the quality of what is a home: free to choose who to share it with. Get in the good things as light and air. Keep out what is not wanted: rain, heat, cold. A place to organize your life in, with a family, with work, with neighbors and all this in comfort and in peace. World wide this is hard to get. It has priority to become available in a sustainable way.
Water & Sanitation
Project initiatives to improve access to water and sanitation, to remove restrictions of cost, to reduce the effort to supply, to ascertain safe use and consumption, to organize proper disposal or secondary use. Ways of teaching and promoting rapid and general adoption of appropriate solutions
Means to harvest energy from sun, wind, water flow, animal and human power. Means to extract energy from burning fuel. Means to convert energy, mechanical, electrical and heating. Mechanical components for conversion of the speed of rotation. Means to do so locally with what is locally available.
Redesign transportation for people and goods where it matters for sustainability, for quality, in conditions of poverty, for people disabled. Whether used individually or collectively. Add more flexibility, comfort and fun to transportation.
