Future Projects

Wood Cooker Scale-up:
With the help of a $200,000 grant from the United States EPA, CEDESOL hopes to up its production of ecological wood cookers to 20,000 cookers/year by 2010. This is a project of tremendous proportions and will be the largest initiative ever put forth for alternative cooking solutions in Bolivia. Stay tuned as this project gets underway in the Fall of 2007!!

ETHOS Global Awareness Program:
After taking 9+ hours of footage this year in Southamerica Mike will have his work cut out for him with editing this fall/winter. In addition to making an ETHOS promo to promote student involvement in volunteer projects abroad he is also hoping to provide short educational videos for middle school students on topics like:

1 - Indoor Air Pollution and Alternative Energy Solutions in Developing Countries
2 - Environmental and Humanitarian Issues in the Jungle
3 - Household Energy Solutions.

Good luck Mike!!!
