I'm working on a Mini EV Project. Our company is developing a personal transportation vehicle suitable for the 21st century urban environment. We're launching our first Limited Editions, as first step towards commercialization. Also, we are actively looking for exposure on international media.
I never have regretted and in fact am grateful to have participated in the YES program. Not only did I meet many great minds from academic and industry, I met also many friends with all kinds of background and cultures, and had so many eye openers of the ultimate challenge of sustainable development; YES also brought real opportunities to put ideas into action. For example I have met with the founders of Southpole, with whom I learn about carbon trading and eventually worked with Southpole on developing Green House Gas emission reduction projects. I also have met Mr. Ernst, the former Environmental minister of Luzern, he introduced me to Prof. Janach and we've been working on our project since. Moreover, the program organizers, especially Prof. Baud has provided incredible support all these years.
What is extremely valuable for me is that through meeting the right people and discussing the right topics, I eventually realized what I want to do and what I can do. With a little bit of luck, it is possible to find a pointer or two to make a difference in the world. YES taught me a simple lesson: sustainability is not up in the air, it is down on earth right under our feet.
