Student showcase: How to change the world

We would like to warmly invite you to attend our student Showcase event for the multi-universityInterdisciplinary Engineering for Sustainability and Innovation (aka ‘How to Change the World’) course, running this term in partnership with the global social enterprise How to Change the World and ten faculties of engineering from across Canada.

Across this term, our students have collaborated in small multi-university and interdisciplinary teams to identify and understand a complex sustainability – social and/or environmental – challenge faced by a real-world community. With the support of peers, teaching team and global mentors and experts they have devised, designed and proposed an implementable idea for positively impacting that challenge.

This in-person Showcase will provide our students with the opportunity to showcase their excellent work to a valuable audience at our university. Your presence will be meaningful to these talented and motivated students!

Location TBA.

Chasing Time (film screening)

The documentary Chasing Time will be screened with a following panel discussion, Friday in the E7 event space (2nd floor).  The documentary is the visually stunning culmination of the Extreme Ice Survey project: an unprecedented 15-year photographic record of the melting glaciers around the world.

Admission is free.  RSVP at the event site.

This event is part of the visit of David and Linda Cornfield to the Systems Design Engineering department.  David Cornfield is a Waterloo Engineering graduate ('85), who went on to a successful career with Microsoft.  David and Linda Cornfield turned their attention to philanthropy and environmentalism, choosing to support projects that will have great social and environmental impact.

Chatting Time is a follow-up to the documentary Chasing Ice (2012).
