We want to provide water to the people that need it the most starting with the Wayuu Colombian indigenous communities. We propose a portable water desalination unit powered with solar energy. To begin, we'll build and field test the prototype. Our main objective is to become a sustainable organization that produces this unit massively and affordably. This to ensure that we can supply as many units as possible for the communities in need.
Hello, I'm Pedro a mechanical engineer and artist with an enormous social and environmental focus in my work. I majored in the Andes University of Colombia and have been involved with renewable energies and water projects during my whole career and internship, helping in the construction of the wastewater treatment plant of my city. Currently, I'm the manager of the Sea for Change project and spend the majority of my time thinking about how to give drinkable water for communities that need it the most. At present, we are looking forward to creating a small scale solar-powered water treatment machine for vulnerable communities in Colombia.
I'm Simon, a creative mechanical engineer from Colombia with experience in energy and engineering projects focused on social impact and innovation. Throughout my career I have engineered for people. Right now, I am part of Sea for a Change as the Structural and Integration Engineer, leading the design of the prototype. For me, the biggest challenge for development is the access to basic needs like water. This project is a substantial aid for people from La Guajira to access drinking water through an innovative and scalable solution.
I believe that engineering should be a driver to solve many of the problems that affect humanity today and to plan for a better future for all. In this occasion, I have joined this project to help the indigenous communities that live in La Guajira have access to potable water. I am a mechanical and electrical engineer with an emphasis on renewable energies. Therefore, I am currently enrolled in the power and control area of the machine we aim to build.
My name is María Camila Prieto, I’m a 23-year-old social communicator, publicist and artist. I feel very motivated by this whole project because it reminds me that we are just temporarily in this world, and whatever we do must be in favor of life, through kindness and empathy. I’m responsible of the whole communication part of the project which includes editing videos, creating content for social media, and keeping track of the whole process, in order to update our media, and share every progress we make.
I am a mechanical engineer with a passion for progress and justice.
Currently, I'm in charge of designing and developing the desalination mechanism's energy and power system.
I love to see my profession as a tool to create a positive impact on people. It motivates me to promote the development of remote communities in Colombia and contribute my sand grain to make this world a better place.
