General Objective of Caminos de Agua’s Educational Programs
Strengthen and transform the next generation of the international and national WASH sector and related fields through sharing of organizational experiences regarding development and installations of low-tech technologies in rural community settings, building social and historical context around projects, encouraging critique and reflection of development and service work, and participation in community-led installations of low-tech water solutions.
The 2018 educational program will be uploaded soon.
The 12-day “Sustainable Technologies in Action: Building Enduring Communities” course gives participants the tools to analyze real life problems in water access, energy, construction and other areas, and to propose sustainable solutions.
This year, for the first time, we offer two exciting additional courses: Biomass, biodigesters and Sustainable Community Practices to take place in the Yucatan or Biochar and Slow-Sand Biofiltration for Potable Water to take place in San Miguel de Allende in conjunction with the Aqueous Solutions. These courses may be taken as extensions to the 12-day course or you may also apply for these courses separately.
