Welcome to

The coastal Caribbean community of Punta Brava on the shores of Lake Izabal, Guatemala has been chosen to host the 5 th World Bamboo Workshop from 26-29 October this year. This village is a living example of how bamboo can help develop and sustain climate-resilient communities.

The World Bamboo Organization, a United States NGO, has teamed up with the Guatemalan-based construction firm CASSA, led by Tono Aguilar. CASSA has been working with Punta Brava since 2017, designing and building the village’s first ever high school, as well as beautiful climate-resilient bamboo houses with the help of its residents. Our combined efforts will teach the community how to grow and utilize bamboo to kickstart a local bamboo economy.


Stay tuned for more details and registration.
