About: Sustainable Technologies in Action: Building Enduring Communities showcases ecological solutions to real world problems. Participants take away tools in context and needs assessment, design, implementation to create solutions that help to stop climate change.
The 12- day course “Sustainable Technologies in Action” challenges participants to create their own solutions for more sustainable communities in rural, peri-urban and urban contexts using a unique pedagogy mix of theoretical and practical components. In the course, international students will have the opportunity to see many different technologies in distinct fields and contexts in operation. Participants are then challenged to critique these applications and propose improvements and/or other applications for consideration to the organizations and individuals involved.
The coordinators of the course are experienced facilitators in international educational courses, and the instructors are highly respected in their fields. They have developed this work in diverse backgrounds: social entrepreneurship, design and engineering.
Course participants are passionate about creating sustainable solutions to real world problems. They come from all over the world and learn not only from the course instructors but also from the amazing life experiences that each participant brings.
