Engineering for Change

Engineering for Change | technologies | Scoop.it
Engineering for Change connects a growing community of engineers, technologists, social scientists, NGOs, local governments and community advocates, who are dedicated to improving the quality of life all over the world.
John Dalziel's insight:

There are a wealth of initiatives in underserved communities throughout the world focused on increasing access to...

food and clean water,effective sanitation,energy,housing andother basic needs.

Often, technologies intended for these communities fail due to lack of communication and access to information. As a result, there’s a growing need for a centralized collaboration hub where knowledge and experience can be captured, shared and leveraged.

E4C Mission Engineering for Change (E4C) is a growing community of engineers, technologists, social scientists, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and local community advocates who are passionate about improving quality of life. E4C seeks to enable this growing community to design, apply and share appropriate and sustainable technical solutions to achieve transformational results for humanitarian and global development challenges.

John Dalziel's insight:

ChronoZoom is an open-source community project dedicated to visualizing the history of everything. Big History is the attempt to understand, in a unified, interdisciplinary way, the history of cosmos, Earth, life, and humanity. By using Big History as the story line, ChronoZoom seeks to bridge the gap between the humanities and sciences an enable all this information to be easily understandable and navigable.
