The Geoversity Bamboo Ark Campaign was launched at COP 26 in Glasgow by Guna youth leaders Agar Tejada and Iniquilipi Chiari from Panama in partnership with indigenous leaders from the Americas. The first 11.5 meter Bamboo Ark is being built by Henk Bergsma and Roelof Van der Werff in the Netherlands for shipment and completion in Panama. The design, inspired by the shape of traditional Guna and Emberá dugouts, is by Fairwind Marine Projects.
