Overseas Workshop Part 2 Recap

On Tuesday November 24th, EWB UOIT held a workshop featuring a former EWB Junior Fellow (summer 2009) and current UofT co-President Mike Klassen. Running a workshop he himself had made, it was the perfect compliment to the workshop held a week earlier. The topic of his workshop was his work with sanitation issues in Zambia and featured exclusive video shot at his workplace over the summer, as well as video of his Zambian associate Arnold who spoke about the particulars of sanitation.

EWB Overseas Workshop November 17

We will be having another workshop next Tuesday (the 17th) at 11am to 12 in UL11 to talk about the work that EWB does overseas and the potential of students from our school going over the summer to work with agriculture, water and sanitation and infrastructure. I really hope everyone with interest in this comes out. You don’t even have to be interested in volunteer work, but come to get a good sense of how engineering skills can be used towards human development.

Update: So as I am preparing this workshop I realized there is no way I can print everything for everyone. Since we are a laptop university I have simply uploaded or linked all the materials you need here!
