This September, run like it matters at the North Shore Marathon with Engineers Without Borders!
Run with our fun team while taking part in fundraising efforts for the work that Engineers Without Borders does in our community and beyond.
For those with an itch in their feet, the North Shore Marathon offers options for the 42km, 21km or 10.5km routes, based at Milford Reserve and running along the beautiful Takapuna / Devonport waterfront. We will have support people on hand, t shirts for our team, and a feed at the finish line!
If running isn't your thing, walk the 10.5km route with a 20L water container to raise awareness around access to fresh water in the developing world. Globally, water scarcity already affects four out of every 10 people. A lack of water and poor water quality kills approximately 2.2 million people every year. (WHO)
WASH is the collective term for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene. Due to their interdependent nature, these three core issues are often grouped together to represent a growing sector. While each a separate field of work, each is dependent on the presence of the other. For example, without toilets, water sources become contaminated; without clean water, basic hygiene practices are not possible.
The WASH sector is core to some of the work which EWBNZ does, and during this workshop our facilitator, John Edwards, will take you through what projects in this area look like.
This workshop is free for EWBNZ members and Massey University staff/students. Otherwise, the fee for the workshop is $50.
