Catalyst Agri-Innovation Society



Catalyst Agri-Innovation Society
Abbotsford, British Columbia
Canada



«The purpose of Catalyst Agri-Innovation Society is to build bridges, linking silos of innovation and opportunity. We have selected Agriculture as the foundation as food is the common denominator of life. Producing food is part of the biological and cultural, as well as economic fabric of a civilization. It has been said that “What happens out in the countryside in one century invariably affects the cities in the next century”. Today that time delay, between cause and effect, has been reduced to the speed of thought. The massive advancement of global integration means we can no longer rely on the foundations we stand on, or the defences that have kept us “safe”. We believe that for the good of all, perhaps the very survival of all, we must return to the thinking of centuries ago, in that there was an understanding that we are “in this together”. We believe that we must bring together think tanks that roll up their sleeves, and get their hands dirty. We envision a world where the microbiologist and the chemical engineer have lunch with the botanist and the entomologist talking about how the bug protecting the plant excretes a fluid that enhances the bacteria processing the fertilizers. Over the next days each of those lunch friends have coffee with the sociologist, the economist, and the psychologist.»

Article on the SpineLock Living company's innovative zero carbon 18 home method. This system «makes use of a panelised interlocking ‘cassette’ system, which has been developed over several years». Derick Wilson, SpineLock’s CEO, underlines that: «The UK housing industry is facing two major challenges over the next few years – to deliver enough affordable, quality housing to accommodate a growing population and to reduce carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050, all in the midst of an economic crisis. To overcome these challenges a new way of designing and building houses is needed».
