The BAckground

Use of technology has separated us from nature and destabilised the balance of our climate. Technology must find a new purpose; to repair our natural systems, help life to thrive, and connect as many humans as possible to the process of change.

Short-sighted tech helped cause this dilemma, far-sighted tech can help fix it.
