  1. Participate in the Humanitarian GBV Risk Mitigation & COVID-19 Survey. The study includes a 30-minute online survey on gender-based violence (GBV) risk mitigation and COVID-19 in humanitarian settings. This survey is being conducted by researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, in partnership with UNICEF, CARE, and the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI). We encourage practitioners working in the humanitarian field, especially those in non-protection sectors, to participate in the survey available here in 6 languages. Your experiences and insights will help strengthen GBV risk mitigation in the context of COVID-19. For more information contact Dr. Jennifer Scott (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center) and the Humanitarian Gender Study Team at humanitariangenderstudy@bidmc.harvard.edu or visit the study website.

  2. 2020 Winner for Engineering Education Engagement Congratulations to Cris Birzer, Nick Brown, Eva Cheng, Sarah Herkess, Beatrix Neville, Tanja Rosenqvist, Jeremy Smith, Alison Stoakley and Jennifer Turner - For ‘Humanitarian Design Summits’ Humanitarian Design Summits is a team application for the AAEE award for Engineering Education Engagement. The application has been led by Nick Brown (RMIT), Sarah Herkess (EWB), Jeremy Smith (ANU), Jennifer Turner (SUT), Eva Cheng (UTS), Cris Birzer (UoA), Alison Stoakley (EWB), Beatrix Neville (EWB) and, Tanja Rosenqvist (RMIT). In reality this small team represent dozens of academics, educators, and practitioners who have contributed to the design and delivery of the Humanitarian Design Summit program over the past six years. Engineers Without Borders Australia (EWB) led Humanitarian Design Summits (EWB Summits) are two-week immersive cross-cultural study-abroad programs that embed human-centred values and approaches in engineering, design, and technology. Since the first EWB Summit in January 2015, over 1,500 students from 35 universities have participated. Sustained success has derived from the purposeful engagement with multiple stakeholders, including EWB, 32 Australian and three New Zealand universities, university students, academics, and dozens of local partner organisations. The engagement has resulted in approximately $4,800,000 in student mobility funding and almost $500,000 universities’ administrative funding, much from consortia applications. Through this engagement with EWB Summits, universities across Australasia have produced graduates with greater global awareness, understanding of the implementation of engineering and technology within society, and stronger consideration of the social impacts of engineering. EWB Summits are raising the quality of engineering education across Australasia and redefining engineering as a human-centred profession.

    Resilience in an energy system can be defined as its ability to resist, absorb, accommodate, adapt to, transform and recover from shocks and stresses. Energy resilience in the Asia-Pacific region is shaped by dynamics relating to energy security, transitions, reliability and recent disasters, such as coastal flooding, volcanic eruptions, cyclones and COVID-19. These are FREE events. This online, interactive workshop series will open up dialogue on energy resilience focusing on the experience of Pacific Island Countries, as well as exchange experiences with other regions. Case studies will include Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Tuvalu and Tokelau, as well as drawing experience from Australia and a range of other countries. The aim of the series is to jointly identify research priorities for increasing energy resilience using grid and off-grid renewable energy in Pacific Island Countries. REGISTER HERE
