The 12-day Sustainable Technologies in Action: Building Enduring Communities” course gives participants the tools to analyze real life problems in water access, energy, organic farming, natural building and other areas, and to propose sustainable solutions.

Caminos de Agua and IRRI Mexico, two dynamic non-profit social change organizations operating in Mexico, will host this fourth edition of the international professional development course “Sustainable Technologies in Action: Building Enduring Communities.” Both organizations are partners of Engineers without Borders- UK and have hosted hundreds in their capacity building workshops.
