Title: Sustainable Technology Transfer from Austria to Bolivia
El Sol is a global-thinking and sustainable project with the declared aim of promoting the use of solar energy for cheap hot water preparation. Through know-how transfer to underdeveloped regions (e.g., Bolivia), the project strives to improve the living standard of the local people. For the long term, the technology developed in Austria should achieve widespread acceptance, and the self-help abilities of the local population should be strengthened. The collateral effects are the sensitization of the population to a respectful handling of the environment, the transfer of skills and information to the target population, and problem-free development cooperation on a social level. Through periodic public relations work, the idea of the concept should become known both in Austria and in Bolivia.
