TKUniverse’15: Eco Showcases Innovative Applications for Emerging Clean Energy and Water Technologies for Micro-Communities.
SM2D focuses on aggregating, adding and amplifying innovation within five key global markets – environment, healthcare, financial, retail and events. It is based in Austin and was founded in 1983. TKU: Eco is part of SM2D’s upcoming summit series that concentrates on showcasing new technologies and developments in its core global markets.
To contribute to COP 21, the Service for Science and Technology of the French Embassy in Washington is organizing a series of French-American Climate Talks (FACTs) across North-America. TKU: Eco is one of these FACTs, designed to bring together public leaders, such as the Mayors of Austin and Angers, to act on climate change.
TK-Self Sufficient aims at supporting the development of self-sufficient homes and villages with a view to preserving natural resources, generating less waste and providing healthier living spaces for inhabitants, as compared to conventional buildings.
The idea of the 1000 Villages Foundation is to meet simple human needs. Its focus points are alternative energy, water, connectivity, healthcare, and education. The goal is to bring alternative energy, clean water, innovative technology, and connectivity to underdeveloped communities in need of self-sufficiency and sustainability.
