Occupy Madison builds ‘tiny home’ for homeless

A group in Madison, Wisconsin. is taking an innovative approach to helping the homeless. Occupy Madison, an offshoot of the Occupy Movement, has built its first “tiny home” as part of their initiative called, “OM Build.” They hope the house will become part of a cooperative village of eco-friendly homes. The tiny home is less than 100 square feet, and is built largely with recycled materials. RT’s Sam Sacks talks with Occupy Madison organizer Luca Clemente about how OMB Build helps the homeless in more ways than just providing them shelter.

        I just watched it. Very intriguing. Thanks again. One of my favourite Ted talks is titled “how I fell in love with a fish.” Take a look when you get the chance.
