Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Wellbeing: designing solutions in the time of COVID-19
This project used design thinking principles to help create local solutions around clean water, sanitation, hygiene and wellbeing. This is a key area of learning during COVID-19, but also relates to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation and Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good Health and Wellbeing. This project also aimed to build and deepen students' STEM skills.
This program was intended for participants to enact their solutions on their communities to improve aspects of water, sanitation, hygiene and wellbeing.
