Earth School was co-created by UNEP and Ted-Ed to provide kids, parents and teachers all over the world with engaging nature-focused content to stay connected to nature during the global covid-19 pandemic, which has seen approximately 1.5 billion children out of school. Earth School takes students on 30 quests, each focused on a different nature related topic. Earth School seeks to inspire such stewardship through its quests, each of which focuses on a different topic and allows us to understand, conceptualize and connect with nature in a different way.
Technovation - Smart Garbage Monitoring System Using Internet of Things (IOT)
One of the main concerns with our environment has been solid waste management which impacts the health and environment of our society. The detection, monitoring and management of wastes is one of the primary problems of the present era. The traditional way of manually monitoring the wastes in waste bins is a cumbersome process and utilizes more human effort, time and cost which can easily be avoided with our present technologies.
This is our solution, a method in which waste management is automated. This is our IoT Garbage Monitoring system, an innovative way that will help to keep the cities clean and healthy.

OekoSolve - Fine dust filter for wood heating (Electrostatic Precipitators for woody biomass heaters)
OekoSolve develops electrostatic precipitators (ESP) for woody biomass heaters up to 3 MW and the wood chip dryer with an integrated electrostatic precipitator up to 10 MW. The particulate filters, which are based on the electrostatic principle, ensure compliance with the statutory regulations with regard to the maximum permissible particulate matter load for wood combustion systems. The fine dust filters can be used in any wood stoves for pellets, wood chips, and wood logs.
Currently working on the project 'Swiss Fine Dust Filters for Chilean Wood Stoves'
