The Truth is clear

What does it mean to live in sync with nature? To understand the delicate balance of the environment? How do you reconcile economic growth with preservation of environment? The truth is clear – action on the ground is needed now more than ever, and the need will only grow with time.

Why Kapokseed?

The kapok tree is widely spread around the world and occupies an important niche in the ecosystem of a rainforest. It’s branches provide a habitat for countless epiphytes, which provide food and shelter for many types or animals. It allows animals to move around the rainforest without coming down to the ground.

“The best renewable fuel is to Create an Ecosystem for Innovation”

Thomas Friedman
Like the Kapok tree, this platform is an ecosystem where thoughts germinate, ideas connect, philosophies are discussed, and concepts grow into designs. And the designs become the new norm. The ecosystem is right. The time is perfect. The need is urgent. Let us create an ecosystem that will change the way we think.
