Resilience Webinar Series - EWB, TU Dublin & ESAI

Engineers Without Borders (EWB) Ireland in partnership with TU Dublin and supported by the ESAI are launching a weekly Resilience Webinar Series which will run from June to August. The webinar series will take place every Wednesday at 1.30pm and will comprise a short 15-20 minute presentation from a range of guest presenters from around the world.

The overall theme of the webinar series is “Resilient Cities and Communities” and how we can rethink and create these post COVID19. Speakers will discuss topics ranging from building earthquake resilient schools in Nepal, to nutrition programs in Niger, to responding to COVID19 emergencies in Ireland and Bangladesh, among a host of other topics. The purpose of the series is to prompt discussion and debate, and ultimately to harness the creativity of the wider scientific and engineering community to solve local and global challenges in a post COVID19 world.

These events are part of the EU development education and awareness raising (DEAR) programme (EuropeAid/151103/DH/ACT/Multi) and the Build Solid Ground Campaign, which aims to inform and actively engage EU citizens in actions towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities. Recordings of our first three webinars and details of our next three webinars can be found on the Zoom registration page.


Our webinar series is supporting our partner Zamda Ireland in their fundraising drive for the Sables Nua Children's Centre in Kabwe. To donate products, please visit Zamda Ireland’s website or you can donate funds on the EWB website with the reference "Sables Nua".
