LAST CHANCE: workshop in Colombia July 22, 2014
We have a few remaining places for the Resilience by Design worskhop in Cartagena, Colombia, so apply now to secure your place. Here is a brief reminder about the workshop:
Architecture Sans Frontières-UK (ASF-UK), and Fundación por la Educación Multidimensional (FEM) are working together over the next 2 years to assist 22 local communities living in the beach/mangrove ecosystem of Cartagena, Colombia to each produce a Plan Administrativo del Territorio (PAT, Territorial Management Plan) for their individual settlement. The PAT is a fundamental aspect of the documentation required in order to obtain collective land ownership titles from the State of Colombia.
In order to achieve this the first step of the process is a workshop in September 2014, run by ASF-UK, where the team will pilot a methodology using participatory design and planning as a means to formulate community-based guidelines for the development of an initial PAT for Tierrebaja, one of the 22 settlements. Participating in this workshop, and contributing towards one of the first PAT’s in Colombia, could be the stepping stone into the world of development that you might be looking for. We know how hard it is to find a relevant internship or placement to gain the experience required to work in this field and therefore we are really excited about this opportunity! There are 4 remaining places for international participants on this workshop.
