GEIST is an NGO trying to give inspiration for everyone to move towards a sustainable lifestyle and to choose the right sustainable system solutions. Geist is a Swedish word that means empower for action. Our vision is that some of our initiatives will empower you to take action for rescuing of our common home Planet Earth. Every single small step in a sustainable direction matters.
At the moment, we are involved in some projects focusing on changing eating, sanitation and fashion habits by introduction of biogas technology to ensure the availability of bio fertilizer for small scale organic farming. Grass, organic waste and black water are used as digester feed. Existing problems with pit latrines and smoke from fire places can be solved by introduction of biogas as a cooking fuel and biogas toilets. We are also trying to promote biogas and synthetic diesel made from biogas as a vehicle fuel. GEIST have been pioneering the use of grass as a feedstock for biogas production, thus increasing the biogas and bio fertilizer potential to pave the way for self sufficiency of organic food and renewable vehicle fuel on a global level. Members of Geist have been pioneering the use of biogas as a vehicle fuel in Sweden, now having most biogas cars per capita in th e world. There are now over 160 fuel filling stations for biogas in Sweden.
Leaving factory farming and fracking and promotion of a vegan diet are also some of our key issues.
