Village Earth has been working with EWB-USA members since 2007, providing training in the theory of community development and the practical methods for enhancing trust, communication, and participation between chapters and partnering communities. EWB-USA chapters have reported that these trainings have been helpful in building better relationships with partnering communities and therefore conducing better community development programs.
This online training consists of four two-hour evening discussions starting Monday, February 6th and ending Thursday, February 9th. Discussions are live; each student can see and hear the instructor and other students (earphones and web-camera are required). Course details and registration information can be found on the attached flyer and online at http://villageearth.org/training-and-consulting/in-person/online-community-mobilization-training-for-engineers-without-borders
