Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

Envienta is a community based initiative which aims to make communities self-sufficient in food, water, and other essentials. As an open source model based on modern technology, it offers business plans for free as well as full transparency.

Where will your idea take place?

Ayagaures, Gran Canaria, Spain

Why does Europe need your idea?

Global warming and pressure on resources of all kinds means that advanced societies must find sustainable ways of producing energy, food and water. Apart from the economic benefits of clean energy and renewables, European governments have a responsibility to take a lead in developing new technologies, and new ways of thinking. We believe that the Envienta Project is a new way of thinking where sustainability can grow from the grass roots rather than be imposed from the top down.
Europe rightly takes a lead in providing overseas aid for the victims of war, oppression and hunger. Products and solutions such as: readily available clean water, simple foods, insulated dwellings, developed through Envienta may have a role during humanitarian and other crises.

What is your impact?

We would like to establish an Evienta model community centre. The aim will be to show how to build a self-sufficient home using cheap renewable energy, hydroponic gardens, 3D printer technology and recycled materials. Evienta could be a valuable model for goverments, aid agencies and others for managing the problems of refugees, the hungry, migrants, and the homeless.

How do you get there?

Envienta will be based on Gran Canaria (Spain) modelling a self-sufficient living project in a dry, semi-desert climate zone. Most of the long-term weather researches forecast that climate changes will cause huge challenges for mankind effecting agriculture, geopolitics, migration and so many other things.
In the Envienta Project we represent three main directions: Technology, Self-sufficiency and Open Source.
Open Source Ecology is made up of the collective development and free access to economically important information available on the internet.
The latest 3D printing technology provides independence from the supply chain and the cost of transportation by printing objects where they are needed.
