Engineering WITH People

Your community is in danger from extreme flooding.
Join a group of Professionals and Community Members and develop a reliable solution before it's too late!

Each year, billions of people are affected by floods, have no reliable energy and clean drinking water.

Saving communities depends on how well you communicate with and understand others.

Engineers and other Professionals tend to suggest and make solutions FOR people without collaborating WITH those who will use them.

Would you do the same?
