At this time of year, we are usually busy preparing our legendary Hands on Weekend. Unfortunately, Covid 19 has spoiled our plans this year, but rather than giving up and postponing it until next year, we see it as an opportunity to share what we have learnt through the years and the ingenuity and creativity it takes to be humanitarian.
Welcome to the Hands On/Off Weekend 2020 – virtual session focusing on key aspects of WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) in Emergencies. Participants will get involved in two practical interactive sessions and learn about handwashing facilities in emergency and adequate latrine design, followed up with the discussion about different aspects of humanitarian response, including how the current challenges might impact and change the way humanitarian response is delivered.
The aim of the session is to give you an introduction into the humanitarian sector, learn about disaster relief, especially WASH aspect, experience the challenges you could face as a humanitarian, meet like-minded people and hear directly from our team of experts in the field.
When: Saturday 19 September - 10.30 to 15.00
Where: Zoom (no need to have an account)
Cost: £15 per person (£10 concession - students, unemployed)
