Project Lead/Creator: Electric Canoes in the Rainforest

Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.

Large dugout canoe typical for moving people or goods


We work with folks in the remote rain forest of Panama. They get around by motorized canoe, and we are very interested in introducing electric motors to the area. Electric outboards exist, and are growing in power and range, and slowly dropping in price.

We are looking for someone to make this project a reality. Create relationships with the electric motor companies, battery companies, solar panel companies...inspire them with the opportunity, and pull it all together.

This is an exciting chance to spread sustainable technology, and open up a whole new region to sustainable transport. If you see it rather as a business opportunity, then we could engage local indigenous people in creating it to generate their own income.

Does that light you up? Then please join our team!
