EWB Ireland in partnership with TU Dublin, are hosting a weekly Resilience webinar series over the summer months taking place each Wednesday starting at 1.30pm. The webinar series comprises a short 15-20 minute presentation from a range of guest presenters from around the world. The overall theme of the webinar series is “Resilient Cities and Communities” and how we can rethink and create these post COVID19.

The purpose of the series is to prompt discussion and debate, and ultimately to harness the creativity of the wider scientific and engineering community to solve local and global challenges in  a post COVID19 world.  These events are part of the EU development education and awareness raising (DEAR) programme (EuropeAid/151103/DH/ACT/Multi) and the Build Solid Ground campaign, which aims to inform and actively engage EU citizens in actions towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities.

Technology has never been cheaper, more widely available and potentially impactful.  Applying these new forms of technology to local regions, powered by local people can help not only improve local resilience but also increase local opportunities. This webinar will discuss some of the technological impacts of low-cost tech, how to integrate into local communities and what’s possible in the area of applied technology solutions.

Litter: Not Always a Waste

Litter is a result of a convenience lifestyle and a problem we pass on to someone else when we can so we don’t need to think about it. Often this litter comes back to haunt us. Elaine will take a look at confronting litter and finding the goodness in it.
 
Webinar 6: July 8th: Pat Kennedy, Managing Director of eTownz

A Proposal for a Smarter Approach to Community Management

Pat will provide a summary of eTownz research and the development of the “Smart Engaged Community Management Framework” which he developed along with a number of universities in Ireland. The approach allows communities to identify their own needs and priorities and create development plans. Now more than ever, communities need to be connected and active online and Pat will discuss what he sees as the future for Smart Community Management.”
