Growing a fruitful future
OUR MALDIVES MATTER PROJECT
WORLD’S FIRST SELF-SUFFICIENT GREENHOUSE PROJECT IN A TROPICAL LOWLAND CLIMATE
Maldives Matter Project will be the only food production facility that produces crops with high quality and consistency which currently cannot be grown locally in isolates areas in an era of increasing vulnerability of the SIDS.
Local Food Production
Aiming for a shorter food supply chain and maintaining high quality crops and deliver consistency.
Combining existing techniques to generate sustainable electricity and water, and therefore making the greenhouse work self-sufficient.
Raising independency by knowledge transfer through education, and creating employment opportunities for the local community.

About Resilient Island
We aim to implement circular economies regarding food and waste streams in the world’s most isolated regions: the Small Island Developing States. By realizing local and sustainable food production, generating renewable energy, creating circular food and waste streams, up-cycling materials, conducting a knowledge transfer and enhancing the local economy by providing jobs, we try to bring more independency.
Because we believe that the Small Island Development States should be fully self-sufficient and be able to grow towards their own clean, fruitful and sustainable future.

Prototype and lettuce grow test
Currently, Resilient Island is working on realizing a prototype of the semi-closed greenhouse with the size of 40 m². This greenhouse will hold a lettuce grow test, where many different species of lettuce are recorded under the controlled climate environment. This research is in collaboration with our partners.
