THE FUTURE OF FORESTS
Six people make up the PrimeX “Future of Forests” team, which will participate at the international competition launched by XPRIZE Fundation in collaboration with Kimberly-Clark company.
The objective of this initiative is to design the next XPRIZE contest. That is, generate ideas about possible future XPRIZE competitions focused on the future that we all want for our forests. For this deal, the teams will work on any of the six action pathways that the organization has specified: alternative wood products, decoupling land from food production, fighting deforestation, value of forests, carbon sequestration and renewable energy production.
The PrimeX by FUE team will focus on this last theme to generate a competitive idea focused on the preservation of forest ecosystems and sustainable energy production.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
This project will develop new and more sustainable paths to take care of the forest ecosystems and, therefore, the environment.
Forests are home to more than 80% of terrestrial biodiversity and we depend on them as a source of food, water, shelter and survival in general. However, due to human activities, the rate of forest loss exceeds that of restoration, destroying more than 18.7 million acres each year.
OUR ADDED VALUE
We have created a multidisciplinary team that works to stop the deforestation of forests around the planet and promote environmental awareness.
