Raramuri’s ethnicity has a deep attachment to nature and “Mother Earth”, in this sense the proposal seeks to create a prototype model for a dynamic classroom with a strong emphasis in traditional permaculture systems that relates closely to their context. Also merging passive and cultural systems such as the “Lorena’s stove”, help reduce the strong climate conditions typical of the Sierra Tarahumara.
