Cooling is crucial in off-grid villages throughout the developing world:
water, refrigeration for vaccines, cooling for Maasai cheese, and even
spaces, whether for productive uses of energy (cold chains for fish or
agricultural / dairy products) or homes and community spaces. In this
webinar, we will hear from several speakers regarding the challenges and
opportunities for cooling in off-grid villages. What innovative solutions
have they discovered? How can keeping cool improve the lives of people
throughout the developing world, particularly the hottest places? As well,
what about the environmental impacts of cooling - how can we ensure keeping
cool doesn't cause further global warming? Our webinar series is a little
different: each expert will speak for less than 10 minutes and will focus on
their on-the-ground experience using photos to tell their story.
