Check out our full model description.

We are part of a larger community

As a community, we feel like we are part of a larger global movement towards a more sustainable world.

Our core principles

Sustainable development, focus on welfare, sense of community, open source, and sharing economy. We aspire to cooperate with parties that share the same principles and goals with us.

Development work

The core of our development work is based on developing life-sustaining and livelihood enabling technologies. We develop, for example, solutions related to food and energy production, general production like recycling, manufacturing, refinement, and treatment of materials.

Freely shared solutions

In fact, we strive to develop and research all society supporting technologies in a smaller scale. In our work, we utilize free and open-source solutions as much as possible. The results of our development will be openly shared on the Internet.

There are other ways to support us, if you cannot work with us right now
