Permalution is awarded Catalyst Grant from the Roddenberry Foundation
Good news amid the Covid19 situation. Permalution is announced as recipient of the Roddenberry Catalyst Fund at the end of April 2020. The grant will be used to develop a wildfire mitigation strategy using fog technology at a natural protected area in Mexico.
The Roddenberry Foundation (TRF) makes catalytic, timely investments in original ideas and extraordinary people who can change the world. Through three core programs we cast a wide net to uncover and support these great, often untested ideas and the individuals and organizations whose vision and leadership have the potential to bring them to fruition. — The Roddenberry Foundation
PURSUING FOG WORK AMID THE PANDEMIC
Permalution has representation both in Sherbrooke, Canada and Guadalajara, Mexico. The teams work together from afar and design solutions for climate change through fog water harvesting technology. Even though the pandemic limits the current work of sending materials over, on-site visits, and more, the teams are currently adapting to a new way of operating, through remote management models and shifting into circular economy based projects to use local materials as much as possible.
We are working with outstanding teams of local forest engineers, biologists, and conservationists that reside where our project is being held. Taking all needed measures and preventions for social distancing and remote working strategies, our teams and partners are eager to continue with the project for wildfire mitigation through fog water harvesting technology. We now see even more the necessity to prioritize concrete actions towards climate change solutions and efforts. — Tatiana Estévez Carlucci, Permalution Founder.
