Local initiatives for global environmental issues
Cesar is now coordinating an international community of makers, sailors, engineers and scientists to develop an open-source sailing drone to clean up both oil and plastics from the sea. Talk about 'Think Local, Act Global'!
The French-Japanese inventor and entrepreneur, Cesar Harada, believes that ocean currents, the wind and other naturally-occurring phenomenon can provide unique inspiration and novel solutions to mankind’s worst disasters, like oil spills and radioactive leaks. And with the right motivation, anything is possible from the bottom up – including cleaning up oil spills.
