When was the idea for Vivos first born?
Robert Vicino first envisioned the need for Vivos in 1980. The plan evolved over the years and became formalized in 2008 as many people expressed their concerns about 2012. That became the impetus to move forward with the project as we felt there is a chance that the prophecies may be realized. The project is truly an enormous undertaking, perhaps even epic! What inspired the idea? Robert had a gut wrenching feeling that something was going to happen and the only solution was with an underground shelter complex. His first thought was to find an abandoned mine shaft that could be converted to accommodate up to 1,000 people for a year.

Is Vivos sponsored by the government? No. Vivos is a private venture developed
