Help! Shifting Perceptions on Global Development Projects

Have you ever gone abroad to participate in a (sustainable) development project, or are you interested in what it’s like? During this lunch event in the HIVE, four TU Delft students will present on their experiences abroad with a focus on how it changed their perception of global development. What were their expectations before heading out to help people in the third world, and what is their opinion now that they’ve seen it for themselves? How has it changed their perception?

Student speakers:Ernst Schütte, TPM, Cameroon (Rural water systems)
Kathryn Hing, ID, India (Jumbo Rikshaw)
Paul Groot, CEG, Chile (Tsunami policy)
Bob Dijkhuizen, TPM, Ghana (Trashy Bags)

After these short presentations, professor Otto Kroesen will lead a discussion with the audience. There will be plenty of room for opinions, criticisms, and a chance to learn about the real value of taking your knowledge across the borders of Western civilization.

Free lunch included, first come first served.

This lunch event is brought to you in cooperation with Delft Social Impact and Students4Sustainability.
