Eric commented on YULAM Connect - Eat - Heal

Hi Jun, Thank you for your kind words. You're right about biomimicry: we are not reinventing the wheel, as jungle produce offer all what people need to live a healthy life. We are just designing a system to make these natural resources accessible, scalable and sustainable. We also want to make sure that these resources' gatekeepers (the indigenous communities) benefit from it, economically and socially.

Dear Thu Nguyen,

Thanks a lot for reaching out and for sharing ideas as well as some advice. Very much appreciated.
Yes we have been sharing constantly our vision with the key stakeholders; we go to the field very regularly. We will definitely incorporate stakeholders' (including communities) feedback in the days to come.

We will definitely pay more attention to the vision for 2050; we are aware that our submission needs further improvements in that aspect; we will work hard as a team and make it a point to use the tools at our disposal.

Take care,

Eric.

Hello Mat. Thank you for your kind words! We are doing our best to preserve valuable yet endangered cultural heritage, which we can learn from in terms of healthy and sustainable lifestyle. We still need to refine our objectives and tighten our systemic vision. Thanks again for the support.
