“Where there is no Engineer – Designing for Community Resilience”

Posted: 2 June, 2015

Earlier this year a challenge was set for engineers to consider resilient designs for communities in developing countries where there are no local engineers.

This development education initiative is funded by Irish Aid and delivered in partnership with Engineers Without Borders Ireland, Concern Worldwide and Engineers Ireland. 

The National Finals of the competition will take place in Smock Alley on Saturday 6th June.   The event will include an exhibition featuring a variety of projects focused  on Northern Kenya, working with the pastoralists who roam across three countries from Northern Uganda.  The exhibition will be opened at 10 am by an Tánaiste and Minister for Social Protection, Joan Burton TD. 

Date:  Saturday, 6th  June 2015

Time:  10 - 2 pm

Venue:  Smock Alley Theatre, 6/7 Exchange Street Lower, Dublin 8.

The event is informal and you are welcome to drop in any time between 10 - 2pm.  We anticipate a highly stimulating, informative and interactive session and would be delighted if you could attend
