The Hunt Institute has created Engineering & Humanity Week to engage the Dallas community in ”Redefining What’s Possible.” E&H Week will showcase innovative technologies and products that are energy-efficient, long-lasting, affordable to the poor, and ultimately profitable. More about the week can be found at: www.eandhweek.org
This blog will be dedicated to the Living Village – where 20 students will live, cook our meals, and sleep in temporary shelters designed to house people dsiplaced by war and natural disasters. Each student will be blogging about our experiences throughout the week, so stay tuned! And, thank you for joining us!About the Hunt Institute: The Hunter & Stephanie Hunt Institute for Engineering & Humanity, located in the Lyle School of Engineering, is focused on using technological innovation and market-based solutions to address the needs of those living in poverty. The Hunt Institute strives to bring together the most talented minds from engineering, science, business, international development and global economics, and combine their efforts with market forces to improve the standard of living for the world’s most impoverished communities. We focus on access to clean water; creating affordable shelter, including design justice for the marginalized; hygiene education and promotion; access to energy; and meeting basic infrastructure needs.
