  • Description


    I am looking to found a not for profit that specialises in environmental restoration.
    I want to design a portable tool that can be used to desalinate and collect fresh water.
    I plan to use this tool in combination with gardening technologies to create food and plant trees in a scalable way while transforming barren land into arable space.

    Depending on what skills you can offer I may put you to good use!

  • Aide


    I am looking for some help in a not-profit start up that I want to found.
    I am starting an environmental start-up and would like some help with various activities and someone to be a sounding board for my ideas.

    **Personal traits of an applicant
    Ideally, I would take someone who is interested in Vienna and who I can share some nice spots in the city.
    I would like someone who is relaxed who enjoys my company and the company of dogs as I have two small ones at home.
    Help with walking dogs and gardening could be appreciated, but it is not a part of the core project itself.
    I would like it for my workawayer to be tidy, but you do not need to do "chores" per se.

    **Technical needs (any one of the following may be helpful, or maybe you have others you think could be an asset)
    -an engineering background (or similar) to help design a desalination box ( a portable plastic double chamber tool to manually add salt water and take out fresh water) - the idea is to create an affordable and scalable product
    -an understanding of evaporation and condensation to provide input on how to design such a tool
    -can reach out to manufacturing companies to design a prototype for this product and receive price quotes
    -a website builder
    -someone to do research on governments that offer subsidies within the field of environmental re-greening or new greening activities
    -someone to do research on where or how to purchase land across the world (or receive for free in exchange for conversion into arable space)
    -an understanding of the use of water efficient greenhouses to be used "on the ground" once rollout of projects occurs
    -an understanding (or interest to learn) about different types of trees that would thrive in the chosen climates of projects

    I would expect 3-4 hours a day at a minimum, but no more than 5 hours per day.
