The Shelter Team is focusing on promoting sustainable playa building practices within the constraints of camps' offerings and styles.
Vision: Our Dreams for BRC 2030
BLAST Ideal: Camps maximize the use of space and minimize the use of resources to create safe, comfortable, multi-purpose shelter solutions that meet emerging default world needs.
Mission: How We'll Get There
BLAST Focus: Eefficient structure designs that require fewer resources to transport, store, build, heat, and cool.
What We're Working On
BLAST Baseline Level: Does your camp track the number and sizes of different types of shelters built on playa?
Compiling metrics and parameters related to shelter sustainability
Brain storming on tough subjects. For example:
An RV may be wasteful when it houses one person, whereas, an RV shared by 6 people, is quite an efficient way to house 6 participants comfortably
Encouraging theme camps to move away from high energy usage travel trailers and recreational vehicles by providing tents that are well shaded from the sun.
