What: Ensure availability and sustainable management of drinkable water for all
Why: Global crisis caused by insufficient water supply to satisfy basic human needs

The design represents a tower which allows the collection of water from the wind through the condensation of the air, as condensation is the process in which gas changes into a liquid when it touches a cooler surface;
The mesh netting is where the condensation of water droplets appear. It consists of filaments knitted together with small openings;
The materials are fishing nets. The most optimal mesh netting is the size of three to four human hairs with holes that are twice as big as the filament.
The filter system works with the help of small rocks and sand, the solid particles and dirt are taken away. Charcoal removes impurities and bad bacteria present
The rain water catchment is made by a banana leaves cap which collects the rain and lets it in to the tower;
Designed and constructed based on innovation, eco friendliness & biodegradable infrastructures, the tower
Is easily buildable by normal people in a short term of time with simple tools;
The social value of the projects connects people to independent behaving, better life and a social crossing of relationships.
