The Motown Movement is a non-profit organization started and run by students from the Delft University of Technology. They are supported by professional specialists from the Delft University of Technology as well as corporate businesses. Together they all support the movement with its ultimate mission: to fight climate change by making sustainable housing accessible for everyone.
We do this by developing and sharing low-budget, DIY methods to create sustainable housing. To test these methods, we are rebuilding a run-down house in 'Hope Village', Detroit, into an energy-efficient home that serves as our proof of concept. The home also serves as a showcase for our methods and as a community hub for the local residents. Together with Hope Village Revitalization (a local nonprofit that focuses on rebuilding Hope Village) the Stud Fund and everyone that supports our cause, we are trying to make sustainable housing accessible for everyone!
