Community Engagement for Better Outcomes Workshop with MAS

Engineers save lives. Engineers Without Borders New Zealand is working to make these life-saving skills accessible to everybody.

Engineers Without Borders New Zealand (EWBNZ) is partnering with MAS to deliver a workshop about using community engagement to achieve better outcomes.

Engineering forms a crucial role within our communities to help them with day-to day activities. This workshop will teach participants how to actively involve all stakeholders by using a human centered and participatory approach in the design process to ensure that the outcomes best serve the community and their specific needs and values.

Workshop Facilitator

Facilitator Emily Ward has worked with multiple stakeholders across rural and urban contexts, most recently delivering educational projects that increase accessibility for Cambodians with disabilities. Read more about Emily here.

Workshop content has been developed in conjunction with Red Dot Design Award Winner 2017 Andrew Drain, Lecturer in Product Design and Development at Massey University.
