Water Access Technology Project & Sustainable Principles Workshop

x12 participants

  • Who: Attend a week long training intensive learning about sustainable and renewable energies at the Bali Appropriate Technology Institute. Get hands on experience with: hydraulic ram pumps, rain water catchment, under and above ground ferro cement tanks, sanitary systems, micro hydro power plants, hand built water pumps and bio-gas conversion. Then put your training into practice as you spend three weeks working with a rural not-for-profit community group and village chiefs focusing on bringing clean water and safe hygiene and sanitation to local families. We will conclude with a visit to the Civil Engineering Department of the University of Udayana, Bali, where you will meet fellow Engineering students.
  • What: You will work collaboratively, in small teams, alongside local staff to review existing access to water and sanitation facilities at a local village in east Bali near Amed, using a human centred design focus. We plan to be involved in the construction of water filtration systems, moving water from one village to another, considering introduction of hydro electric schemes. You will work in your group to: project manage, plan, design, budget, choose and procure materials, construct and evaluate the project. Develop and deliver education and training on basic principles of water hygiene to ensure sustainability of the project. You will be supervised by an Australian Engineer and experienced local staff.
