Making the world's deserts green and ready to welcome the expected population growth

Our vision

For the world's deserts

Our dream

Our dream is to make the world's deserts green. To help the world deal with 9 billion people in the most productive way, by providing beyond sustainable agroforestry fields build in deserts, by providing sustainable housing and sustainable energy.


Did you know that each year we lose 12 million hectares of arable land to desertification (23 hectares/minute)! On top of that 70% of the world's dams face dam siltation problems in the next decade, estimated costs are 21 billion $ per year. Can these huge problems be solved at the same time?


After four years of intense PhD studies at the Technical University of Vienna we now know that we can solve both of these issues simultaneously allowing investors, governments and dam officials in the arid regions to benefit from keeping the lakes clean by using our beyond sustainable transportation system.

Road to oases

We are a team of four dedicated people with a board of inspiring mentors, all with one focus of implementing this solution for the first time. We need partners from governments, industrial partners, financing institutions and willing farmers.
