On the 26th of January CLEAR RIVERS, together with its consortium partners, will present its project at the Climate Adaptation Summit 2021.


We are part of the consortium winner of the Agro-Water Competition, for the category Flood Based Systems, organized by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Vietnam.


The feasibility study, that the consortium is carrying out at the moment, aims at looking into how marine plastic litter could be recycled and turned into floating platforms for agricultural purposes and water storage in flood and drought-prone areas such as the Mekong Delta as a tool to enhance farmers’ livelihood, combat climate change and reduce plastic pollution.


Here is the video interview of CLEAR RIVERS and its consortium partners, HZ University of Applied Sciences, the Institute for Circular Economy Development (ICED), Kim Delta T&C, Can Tho University, and HAN University of Applied Sciences, for the Climate Adaptation Summit 2021.

Let us introduce you SIMocean, a group of 6 international students from the University of St.Gallen that collaborate with CLEAR RIVERS and FAB to tackle plastic pollution in Malaysia.

and GoFundme Campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/f/simocean


Education is an important part of our all-inclusive approach. We believe in developing projects with motivated students to exchange ideas and learn from each other.

Big thanks to our partner Unibrick that supports the project with the design of the bricks.

Do you want to share your knowledge and creativity? Would you like to work in a team, and spend one intense day on thinking, gathering data, designing, constructing, discussing, having lots of fun, sleep little, and have the outcomes presented during the CLIMATE ADAPTATION SUMMIT 2021?


Join our hackathon from January 25th-26th 2021!


How? Form a small team and think, create, design a floating solution made of recycled plastic for agricultural use with CLEAR RIVERS, HZ University of Applied Sciences, HAN University of Applied Sciences - and present your outcome during #climateadaptationsummit2021 #cas2021.
