Ive always been a big fan of Joanna Lumley so I was please to hear that she has become heavily involved with providing funding for inventors to create new solutions for humanitarian problems. She has recently partnered up with designer called Alexander Bushell who has several humanitarian based projects in the pipeline. Bushell is well known for creating an inexpensive rain-catcher and a revolutionary solar desalination system.
On ltts.org website Joanna says “I’ve travelled hugely, travelled so much. I’ve travelled in Himalaya regions, and sub-saharan Africa, and in deserts, and in rain-forests. Clean drinking water is essential, without that: nothing. It’s the most important thing. The thing that’s diminishing on the planet is clean drinking water and the amount of communities, the amount of millions of people who haven’t got access to clean drinking water just breaks your heart.”
Joanna is currently working on a new sewage system and a horticulture project. Forget Dragons Den give Joanna a call!
