HTech Education Challenge

#humanitarian #technology #sustainable #development #SIGHT

  • Why is a systems thinking approach so important for a sustainable development project? Wait, what is systems thinking and what does sustainable mean?
  • Is there any difference between “humanitarian” and “humanitarian technology” projects?
  • Is community engagement just a checkbox in a humanitarian technology project?
  • Do you know what makes technology appropriate?

If you are interested in answering these and other related questions, IEEE SIGHT (Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology) of Montreal Section invites you to the “HTech Education Challenge”!  Take at least the first two of the following FREE IEEE HAC/SIGHT online courses on Humanitarian Technology and Sustainable Development, available in the IEEE Learning Network, and you could win multiple gift cards as explained below*.
