Asian Pacific Environmental Network

APEN is leading a transition away from an extractive economy based on profit and pollution and toward local, healthy, and life-sustaining economies that benefit everyone. We’re building community-owned renewable energy resources to power our neighborhoods, protecting affordable housing so that our historic cultural communities can stay together, creating a local economy of cooperatives owned and governed by community members, and taking back control of our democracy.

change:WATER Labs

change:WATER Labs is developing a low-cost, compact, waterless toilet for non-sewered households and communities. In many refugee camps and disaster-relief arenas, aid agencies struggle to mount acceptable responses to the immediate pressures of providing safe sanitation. Women and girls are disproportionately impacted when toilets are not available because they risk assault or violence with their current solution. change:WATER is particularly motivated to help develop solutions for these situations.

Croptix is developing a practical turn-key solution for identifying crop disease, allowing growers to spot problems long before they’re visible to the naked eye. Croptix uses a revolutionary patented technology to look inside the leaves of citrus trees for signs of HLB and other diseases. Croptix stores each grower’s geo-tagged data in a secure database and applies artificial intelligence to achieve a constantly improving recommendation specific to their groves and growing conditions.
