When in #greece .... Feeling very content with all the accomplishments of this #xprize team. Allowing ourselves a day to relax after a very successful submission

It’s been a couple of weeks, but still very proud that my team (Coral Survival) has won the overall prize design competition at XPRIZE Visioneering 2018! 🐬🐟🦑🦀🐡🐠🐙🦈🐋🐳 In 2019 we will launch a multi-million dollar competition in which teams from around the world can enter and develop the necessary innovations and solutions that can scale to save coral reefs! This is much needed as we stand to loose 90% or more of our corals when we don’t prevent the climate from warming by 2 degrees.

Its now official! Hello XPRIZE.
I am humbled and super excited to have joined an amazing group of brilliant minds, committed to solving impossible problems and making our world a better place.
My mission is to deliver abundance for all, solving the poverty problem by empowering 1 billion people with the right knowledge and tools to rise above their circumstances.
Три года подготовки к главному событию по исследованию дна океана! К финалу, в котором будут соревноваться группы разработчиков из разных стран. Три года постоянного мозгового штурма, борьбы технологий и технической реализации безумных идей. В году проводилось по несколько этапов в разных уголках мира, которые удавалось пройти не всем.
Мы же болеем за немецкую команду! Наши друзья раз за разом доказывают ценность своих изобретений, а мы рады помочь, чем можем. Например, созданием надувных площадок для установки оборудования на катамаране и различных гермоупаковок.
Желаем удачи и идти только вперед , за главным призом!

Hi internet. I'm Co-Directing GERRY, a documentary about the amazing life and influence of Gerard K. O'Neill. Many consider "Gerry" the father of the NewSpace movement made famous by companies such as @spacex, @blueorigin, and @virgingalactic; companies who will take us out into space with real purpose. The future holds so much hope, and I believe GERRY will be a part of that. Follow us @gerrythemovie on IG and Twitter to keep up with us.

At RGL, we know technology has the power to change the world. VP of Product Development, Mike Claerhout, recently sat on the esteemed judging panel of the Water Abundance XPRIZE in Hawaii. The industry-changing technology contest challenges competing teams to alleviate the global water crisis with energy-efficient technologies that harvest fresh water from thin air. Sky Source was the Grand Prize Winner of the $1.75M Water Abundance XPRIZE powered by Tata Group and Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Their technology successfully extracted over 2,000 L from the air using 100% renewable energy. Mike is joined by the Australian Consulate General to Hawaii on the South Point of the Island.

3 weeks ago, I witnessed the most transformational week of my life!
I was part of a team that competed in XPRIZE Visionary 2018 summit, my team won the category of lifting farmers out of poverty but that was not the best part!
The best part was what I’ve learned being surrounded by lots of smart minds! I realized that there are lots of opportunities in this world, way more than the little cubicle where I set at the moment! I realized that there is nothing more rewarding that coming up with an idea that can change people lives and pursuing it as business module. and that’s gonna be my focus for the rest of my life.
Now I’m back to Bangkok and started walking few steps towards that and regardless how tough the journey will be, it for sure worths living 😍 #xprize#visioneering#entrepreneurmindset#entrepreneurlife

Chief Reef on the mic. Part of Team Lorax, out here speaking for the reefs. Big thanks to the @xprize community for stepping up and launching the Saving Coral Reefs #XPRIZE .
One of the most special moments was seeing audience members - many of whom were self-admittedly hours before apathetic or unaware of just how much coral reefs matter to humanity - step up to demand this XPRIZE get launched. It was so powerful to know how much that meant to coral folks on stage who've been working for decades to get people to care. And to realize some of the world's most brilliant minds and capable donors are ready to act.
Shoutout to @wiseoceans @coralvitareefs @accenture @lalaselig @keithferrazzi @peterhdiamandis @anousheh_x @stephen_ranson @gatron2020 @chasingcoral @mulrennan4 and as always my brother @sethteicher for bringing this to life. Let’s get to work.
As we keep saying, there’s no limit to what a shipping container can do on land. Take the case of WEDEW, a carbon-negative water extraction unit that just won the X Prize! This unit, which sits inside a container, extracts enough water for 100 people in a day.
The magical part is that this water is extracted from the atmosphere around the unit - from the air itself! And to cut down the cost of operation, the unit can be powered by whatever local biomass is available. This makes it ideal for off-the-grid and disaster struck areas across the world.

So happy to share that our team won the XPRIZE Visioneering competition to launch a Coral Survival prize fund! The need to restore and protect coral reefs could not be more urgent, and now we have a unique platform to mobilise innovators and funding to ensure coral survival at scale #coral#restoration#xprize
What a week! 💦 Thank you @xprize Water Abundance Powered by @tatacompanies and @dfat .We are so honored to have received this magnificent award!! And thank YOU guys for all for your comments, messages and emails. We really appreciate all the support and are working hard getting back to everyone in a timely manner. Thank you!! 🙏
DAVID & LAURA HERTZ (AIR SCRUBBED OF CO2 )
They prevailed by developing a system that uses shipping containers, wood chips and other detritus to produce as much as 528 gallons (2,000 liters) of water a day at a cost of no more than 2 cents a quart (1 liter) #Globalwarming#Midcentury ##ParisAgreement#WaterFromAir#XPRIZE#2018
The XPrize trophy is seen at The Skysource/Skywater Alliance offices Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018, in Los Angeles. The company received the $1.5 million XPrize For Water Abundance for developing the Skywater 300, a machine that makes water from air.AP/PTI .

Dünya’nın Su Sorununa Çözüm Getirecek Buluş
Havadan içilebilir su elde edilmesini olanaklı kılan cihaz (WEDEW), 1.5 milyon dolarlık XPrize ödülünü almaya hak kazandı.
Geliştirilen cihaz her gün en az 2000 litre suyu havadan elde edebiliyor. Üstelik bu suyu elde etmenin maliyeti ise litre başına 2 cent (yaklaşık 1 lira) ve sistem yenilenebilir enerji ile çalışıyor.
Dünyadaki su sorununu çözmeye yönelik düzenlenen XPrize yarışmasının kazanını olan WEDEW projesi, 1.5 milyon dolarlık ödülü almaya hak kazandı.
Var olan teknoloji ile havadan yine su elde edilebiliyordu, ancak çok yüksek miktarda elektrik enerjisine ihtiyaç duyuluyordu. Biyokütle enerjisi ile çalışan yeni sistem ise önceki yöntemlere göre çok daha ekonomik ve çevre dostu.
Dünya’daki içme suyu bulma sorunu gün geçtikçe artıyor. Araştırmalara göre dünyada her 10 kişiden biri güvenilir suya erişemiyor. 470 milyonu aşkın kişi su kıtlığı çeken bölgelerde yaşarken, her yıl başta çocuklar olmak üzere 10 milyon kişi sudan kaynaklanan salgın hastalıklar sebebiyle hayatını kaybediyor*
WEDEW projesi ile temiz suyun bulunmadığı, kısıtlı olduğu veya çok pahalı olduğu bölgelere içme suyu sağlanarak problemin önüne geçileceği öngörülüyor.
