EWB Ireland is a partner in the Build Solid Ground (BSG) project funded by the European Union which is being carried out by 14 partners, in 7 countries over 3 years. Programme countries include Bulgaria, Hungary, Ireland, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and the UK.
#BSG is funded by the European Union – Development Education and Awareness Raising (EU DEAR) program (EuropeAid/151103/DH/ACT/Multi) and to inform and actively engage EU citizens in actions towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities at home and abroad. Particular attention is given to Land & Property Rights, Gender Equality, Slum Upgrading, Migration & Displacement, and Climate Change.
EWB Ireland in partnership with the DTC Research Group in DIT will run a series of workshops, conferences and talks in Ireland and across Europe, and develop a set of Toolkits on Nature-Based Solutions for resilient cities and communities in the face of climate change.
EWB Ireland will raise awareness awareness through its outreach programme in schools, colleges, businesses and community groups, along with the ongoing Where There Is No Engineer (WTINE) competition.
