The 2019 SGT Studio course [10 cr] is coming to an end! From the beginning of the year, four multidisciplinary student teams have been working hard on tackling real-life development challenges in four different countries. Come witness the innovative solutions, stories and findings from the field and the final development proposals of the teams at the SGT Studio Presentation event. The four projects presented are:

– KENYA: Finding self-sustaining and efficient ways to manage water resources
– NEPAL: Building disaster resilience through communal synergies
– UGANDA: Promoting creative co-working and innovation in Makerere University
– MEXICO: Mapping the village of EL 20 to promote community tourism

Find short summaries of the projects here.

The morning will begin with a short introduction of the SGT Studio, after which the student teams will present their projects. The event will conclude with a panel discussion and some relaxed mingling.
