At Dryad we are developing Silvanet, aiming to build a nervous system for the forest - protecting one of our most vital natural resources from destruction by wildfires. Silvanet will support afforestation and reforestation initiatives with health & growth monitoring using a large-scale IoT sensor network embedded in the forest. Forests are one of the largest carbon sinks we have, yet we are losing an area roughly the size of England annually and deforestation is contributing up to 20% of global carbon emissions.
Dryad was nominated by Purpose Driven Innovation Ecosystem (PDIE Group) which is building a global ecosystem for game changers who are co-creating a better tomorrow. They are one of the top Earthshot Prize nominators.
