For the next five weeks, a group of entrepreneurs are conducting an experiment in living and co-working in a castle about one hour west of Paris.

The goal of the Proof of Concept 21 innovation camp, or POC21, is to “prototype the fossil free, zero waste society.” The organizers have selected 12 teams who will live at the Château de Millemont and work together to develop their projects, which range from low-cost wind turbines to a shower that recycles its own water.
