Worldwide sinking biodiversity represents one of the greatest ecological challenges of the coming decades and has an impact on the climate and the sustainable basis of our lives.
Invasive species, such as plants, fungi or animals introduced by humans drive out other species and take over their living spaces. Some of them could be used as foodstuffs, for instance the Asian clam, which is currently one of the most widespread invasive aquatic species on the planet.
Léon Bolz has created Nautilus as a new product category, a cross between a spade and a landing net. The object simplifies the collection of the invasive mussels and makes them accessible as food for private consumption.
The project focuses on SDG 12, “responsible consumption and production”.
Léon Bolz is the winner of the Canton Lucerne 2023 Young Talent Prize - ST.ART.
