The natural world has been under siege for the entirety of my life, and it has been losing, heavily. An area of forest the size of South Africa has been cut down in that time, 52% of all biodiversity has been lost since 1970, greenhouse gas emissions have been rapidly rising during this time and hardly show signs of slowing and the human population has risen from 5.5 billion to 7.5 billion. If we continue to live in the same way that we are at the moment then ecological collapse is a certainty. That does not look pretty for anyone, or anything on this planet. At the same time billions of people are being failed by the system, they live in completely unsuitable housing whilst penthouse apartments are left empty. There is a complete disconnect between the system of housing delivery and the need for housing.
Therefore in my eyes, the only goal we can possibly have is: to transition the world to one which has minimal impact on the environment and maximises human wellbeing as quickly as possible. There is innovation happening in so many sectors, but housing and cities seemed to be falling behind.The goal of our campaign is to raise £20MM in a token sale to help us build the platform to enable affordable housing for all.
Ehab is simply what the next iteration of house, neighbourhood and city creation should be. One which places humans and their well-being in the driving seat and which uses the best technology available to achieve that.
