PESITHO ApS

PESITHO Pesitho is a Danish based enterprise, committed to providing affordable and clean energy solutions for cooking to marginalized and vulnerable people around the world. We have developed the ECOCA solar powered electric cook stove, to meet the daily cooking and energy needs to families living in off grid areas. Pesitho has established a locally run co-operative outside of the Bidibidi Refugee Settlement in Northern Uganda, from where stoves are assembled, distributed, and serviced by refugee residents and members of the host community. The company was founded in 2018 and has a combined experience of more than 30 years in the renewable energy industry. The Problem we are solving Currently, 4 billion people around the world lack access to clean, efficient, and affordable access to energy for cooking. Polluting fuels and technologies for cooking have a detrimental impact of health, nutrition, gender, and the environment, hindering the process of a sustainable development, in many cases, in already fragile settings. The lack of progress in clean cooking, reportedly costs the world more than $2.4 trillion each year, driven by adverse impacts on health, climate, and gender equality. Left unaddressed, communities will continue face multiple adverse consequences, that are further amplified by poverty, climate change and future global pandemics. To solve this problem Providing access to an affordable and sustainable technology for cooking with the ECOCA solar powered electric cook seeks to address energy security not just for cooking but also to reduce environmental issues like deforestation, pollution, also gender inequality and poverty. Research and design for our stove was conducted with residents of the Bidibidi Refugee Settlement in Northern Uganda, where pilot testing permitted additional adjustments, allowing for a stove specifically designed to meet the cooking needs of vulnerable groups of people living in off grid areas. The ECOCA comes with a solar panel, insulated 6l cooking pot, 1 LED rechargeable household lamp, 1 LED rechargeable torch and USB ports for charging small items. Studies conducted with end users by organizations such as Caritas and World Food Program, have shown improvements to overall health and wellbeing, reducing exposure to harmful pollutants from smoke and usage of firewood, improvements in taste of food, income generation from USB port charging station and hours saved from collecting firewood being reinvested in education and skills training. The Spark Pesitho was founded on the belief that all should be able to have access to modern clean energy for cooking. Seeing a map over Africa showed that a large portion of the continent is without access to modern energy. This sparked a willingness to learn why. Understanding the why lead to the understanding of scale of lacking modern energy in that region of the world. While other continents where mowing a positive direction in relation to rural electrification sub Sarah Africa is still mowing in the wrong direction with the number of people living without access to electricity growing. This knowledge inspired the team to pursue the development of the ECOCA, off grid E-cooker

Biosphere VR

Our goal at Fox Documentaries is to bring the impacts of climate change closer to those who see it as a distant problem. We take viewers around the world and show them first hand how climate change is already bringing devastating challenges for the worlds most vulnerable communities. Fox Media Documentaries is a forward-thinking and pioneering Danish Documentary company based in central Copenhagen (Christianshavn). We work on developing artistic VR documentaries that have both an emotive and educational impact on audiences. Our newest venture, Biosphere VR ( www.biospherevr.com ), consists of five different cinematic VR-experiences that connect spectators with the climate change crisis through immersive technology. Each of the five experiences is seen through the eyes of a particular local individual (narrator) in Beijing, Jordan, Ethiopia, Kiribati and Morocco. See more here: https://www.biospherevr.com/#biosphere. Each VR-experience runs between 5 and 10 minutes and engages audiences on a deeply personal and emotional level. Simultaneously, the five VR-experiences effectively tap into the fundamental consequences of global warming and provide clear and engaging educational content. These experiences have already received a significant commendation at many highly acclaimed international film festivals including VR Days, COP: DOX and Cinequest Film and VR. In addition, Biosphere’s five individual VR experiences have so far been tested in two different educational institutions: Maglegaard School in Denmark, and Learning Lab at Tsinghua University in Beijing (China). Both tests have produced impressive results, with all spectators reporting an increased motivation for learning following their engagement with Biosphere VR. We have also conducted workshops in the US and at COP-summits. For further information about our educational project, please visit ://www.biospherevr.com/introduction-in-the-school#new-page-35https. In addition to the five existing experiences we have produced, we are interested in producing more stories in other parts of the world: including Germany, the Netherlands, the Arctic, among many others. We also intend to conduct more workshops in order to raise awareness of the climate change crisis, as well as to encourage and inspire more climate change initiatives. We are also looking to expand into museums and to conduct exhibitions. Our current focus is to establish partnerships with foreign governments to provide funding for future productions related to climate change in the developing world.

Lalatoys

Lalatoys is a new startup, building a sharing economy retail service for children’s toys. The concept is simple: you sign up and pick the toys you want to play with. Whenever the toy becomes needless for your child, send it back and get something else. Billions of dollars are put into the children's toy market yearly, and of these, millions of unwanted toys are send to landfills every year. What is even worse is that a high amount of children's toys are produced from non-biodegradable plastic. By swapping instead of shopping, we can let our children play in a more eco-friendly way. We just launched! The platform and its features are essential for us to be a scalable business and require our deepest attention at the moment. The idea started, when I, Dinesan, became father for the first time last year. We bought a lot of toys for our daughter (and still do), but in the end it showed that most of the toys our daughter didn't play with after a very short period - it was quite frustrating that we spend money of something, we either would loose money on reselling and would pile up together with the rest- Currently we are three people in the team: Dinesan Rasiah (Founder - CEO) Christian Nielsen Henriksen (Co-founder CTO) Thanusaan Rasiah (Developer)

Ence

Ence is a Norwegian marketplace that collects sustainable brands in one place. Together we offer everyday products of good quality. We work to gather as socially and environmentally sustainable producers as possible in one place, with the aim of making the path to ethical choices shorter for Norwegian consumers. The company was founded June 2020. It started with the founder's personal experiences with trying to find ethical and sustainable brands to shop from, but feeling like it was unfair that the process was so time consuming. People who want to make good conscious choices when shopping, should not have to use hours background checking and surfing from one web shop to another to find products they need. So she decided to create a market place, strictly for ethical and the most sustainable brands. An honest and ethical Amazon if you like. This would spare the costumer of time; by collecting all the products they need in one place, and doing the background checking for them, and knowledge; by introducing them to brands they may not have heard of before, and provide them with information about sustainability that the dishonest brands do not want to provide for them. Today, Ence works together with partnering brands to encourage and educate business leaders who take the responsibility of being more sustainable, so that these types of businesses together can evolve and take up a bigger market share together. By connecting these business leaders together, Ence aims to create a hub for sustainable brands to facilitate their growth. Ence consists of a team of 4 dedicated employees, volunteering for a cause they find important.

Tír Bakery

Tir Bakery is dedicated to stone milling and baking fresh with old biodiverse Danish grains grown in regenerative eco systems. Tir’s bread solves 2 important modern problems: - The effects of climate change: old varieties are able to adapt and develop into the changing environment. - The ill effects high gluten and chemically grown wheat is having on our health. Anders Borgen is a leading Danish wheat farmer who promotes biodiversity working towards the needs of the organic movement (https://www.arc2020.eu/anders-borgen-nurd-of-the-niche/): - Modern bread readily available today is high in gluten and low in nutrition. The modern grain is a genetically modified form of grain that is very high in gluten. This high gluten and low nutrition is making people sick. - Industrial millers also strip the grain of vital nutrients, removing the germ where the oils and nutrients reside, and the bran husk where the fibre is, leaving only the endosperm. - Stone-grinding the flour fresh retains all the nutrients in the flour and the bread. Once the flour is milled oxidation begins to take place and nutrients decrease fast. At Tir the flour is used straight from the mill retaining the highest nutritions and flavour: - The bread will be the highest nutritious bread in Denmark. - Tir Bakery has been collaborating with Birkemosegaard Biodynamic Seasonal Farm where the grain grows (March - October). The bread has been a huge success. During high season 150 breads sold out within a few hours a day. - Due to these farming and milling methods the distribution chain is a lot shorter which reduces the carbon footprint.

Acter

The problem today is not that we lack ideas nor solutions to solve global challenges, but that we are disconnected. Disconnected both at a collaborative level and knowledge level - an ironic fact, considering that most people today are connected more than ever through the internet. The problem is that there is no (infra)structure and no clear overview, which has resulted in a fragmented ecosystem of people, groups, organisations and larger movements working in silos. This is not new to anyone, however the question and ongoing challenge is: how do we change this? As of today, it is hard to know who the others are, where to engage as an individual, who to collaborate with as an organisation, or how to coordinate and share knowledge across initiatives working on the same global challenges. With Acter we are changing this, leveraging technology to foster new and smarter ways of collaborating, breaking down silos, creating more transparency, inclusion, engagement, empowerment and above all, action!

Refillistic AB

Refillistic reduces single use plastic package pollution in the environment by creating win-win situations for everyone. Problems: 1- Customers cause increase of plastic pollution unwillingly by buying single use package products. 2- Customers pay extra cost of single use plastic package products although they only need what inside. 3- Consumers' CO2 footprint by going to a grocery store to buy liquid products and cost & organization requirement of recycling. Our product is advance refilling robots (portable machines which equipped with technologies) proving the customer variable option at the fingertip. The advance machine integrates cloud computing platform for the data backup, disaster recovery email and big data analytics. Thus, having agility, cost saving global presence etc. The machine also comes with an advance operating system that can send signal over the internet thought it IOT based platform. For easy access and easy refill, the machine is loaded with QR reader, sensors, peristaltic pumps that give to the customers superior refilling experience. Since the machine is placed in an unmanned area (common laundry rooms) it has an anti vandalization sensor the detects the threat and shut the machine at the same time send signal to the repair company. Our new business model holds uniqueness within itself, where the transportation, operation and cost will be reduced heavily by setting parallel tasks. Refillistic acts as the middle agent of liquid products. We will sell those liquid products with a profit margin through our refilling robots placed in common laundry rooms/common areas. Unlike the old model manufacturers just have to deliver the liquid products to the cleaning company warehouse in big tanks. Within the warehouse, the auto distribution of the liquid will occur as per the requirement/needs of the different areas. The cleaner destined to clean the area will receive notification well in advance about the reserve mode operation of the machine so the cleaner can carry the required liquid along with the other cleaning stuff. When the machine is refilled, the currently in use container will be transported back to the cleaning warehouse for refilling. This circular model has an edge over the traditional model in terms of operation cost as the consumer can refill their liquid detergent at their fingertip whenever, however, and whenever they require it. Thus, eliminating the extra cost to be borne in an environmental safety manner. The housing companies can win free cleanings of their laundry rooms or an extra income if they let us be in their common laundry rooms. And cleaning companies will be paid for each refilling of the machines and for the extra cleaning by us. Consumers can avoid using plastic packages only once; They also get rid of production, recycling, transportation, logistic and retails' costs and making negative impacts on their environment. And they can purchase same product but with a cheaper, sustainable and smoother purchase experience. We give product manufacturers a possibly to sell their products in a sustainable, environmental, consumers friendly and economical way in the right place. According to interviews and surveys we made, people are curious to pay for easier and environmentally friendly alternatives. They even can pay extra if the solution brings an extra benefit to them.
