Problem Statement

  • Agriculture — Imagine, if we can put an end to drought! Then, we can increase resilience in food security.
  • Mobility — Imagine, if we can put an end to air pollution! Then, breathing fresh oxygen is our right.
  • Air Pollution — Imagine, if we integrate clean mobility to our transportation! Then, CO2 emission is cut by one third.
