Drones for GOOD
The goal of Drone Adventures is to promote the great potential of drones in civilian applications, focusing on conservation, humanitarian, cultural and search and rescue domains.
Drones for Good
Drone Adventures is a non-profit organization founded in Lausanne, Switzerland in March, 2013. We see drones as a powerful and exciting tool that can be used to make the world a better place. Our goal is to demonstrate and promote the great potential of drones to protect our planet and support communities.
Drones in Action
We believe that the best way to show the world how drones can be used for good is through action. We organize Drone Adventures throughout the world, putting together the people that know drones best with the people that need them the most. The data that is collected is then released to local communities on open-source platforms so that the mission’s effect can be felt for years to come. In this way we hope to educate the largest possible audience on how drone technology can positively impact our everyday lives.
Let Our Drones Help You
You’re a biologist, an archeologist, an aid worker, a forest ranger. You’re curious about how drones can help you do your job faster, better, cheaper, so that you can focus on what matters: helping the people and the environment around you.
The key to every Drone Adventure is to have you, the application expert, tell us what data you need. Get in touch with us if your work coincides with our three main goals:
- Protecting our planet – Conservation, wildlife protection, ecosystem and land management
- Helping our people – Humanitarian aid, development, disaster management
- Preserving our culture – Archeology, sustainable tourism, architecture, theatre
We will try to mount a mission that can demonstrate the potentials of drones to your needs, whether it’s creating up-to-the-minute maps, tracking animals any other application you can imagine.
These are some of the application experts we’ve worked with in previous missions.
