PODnet has the global mandate to license PODworks national and regional product lines and service hubs
We are creating a channel for collaboration/cooperation that is becoming a catalyst for mobilizing a local to global movement of social entrepreneurs that give and get support from the community. PODnet is to create services, gather and distribute resources to fund new socio-economic infrastructure owned and operated by local communities.
PODnet is about developing and producing sustainable eco-building solutions and systems, products that are designed to secure clean food, energy and water. We promote and lobby for developments of open source Creative Commons practices to make regenerative solutions available for all people and to assure our practices are sustainable for people and the planet. AgriPOD is our cooperative commercial enterprise platform that builds on the SolaRoof bubble building research and development work done over previous decades in Canada and Norway.
The POD Enterprise Network is a Cooperative Organization that is emerging all around the globe through our PODpioneers, PODworks social enterprises and other PODnet members that contribute and work towards our common goals of providing sustainable clean food, energy and water for all people and make the planet sustainable for future generations.
PODnet is to become a channel for collective action in support of the emergent PODpioneers and PODworks social enterprises.
With a pro-active plan to provide PODnet membership, the PODpreneurs, with open source closed ecological environment technology, know-how, and both open and proprietary climate control and growing systems, will profitably manage and operate negative carbon footprint social enterprises for local food at their properties and homes to face the escalating energy prices, water and food shortage, while producing clean, healthy and tasty food.
PODnet is supporting the emergence of the AgriPOD solution for vertical farming of the 21st century. We adopt and develop a COOP business model, and we invite and inspire collective action by our PODpioneers in advance of the formation of the COOP. After the formation of PODnet as a global COOP, registered in Iceland, we will then share our Creative Commons solutions to enable everyone, everywhere to be PODpreneurs who are growing real food with regenerative methods that are becoming well known and widely adopted. These shared solutions will also help to bring security to communities and nations most vulnerable to the emerging food crisis, energy and water scarcity.
