The Penn State HESE Program and Sustainable Ventures in Kenya

Dr. Gershenson will discuss the Penn State Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship program and some of the sustainable ventures they are working on now. In particular, he will discuss two ventures in Kenya that they are working. In one Dr. Gershenson will highlight their use of distributed, local manufacturing to eliminate long-distance shipping and support more effective rural hospitals. In the other example, he will discuss the production of cooking briquettes from invasive plant species to eliminate deforestation. Dr. Gershenson will also discuss how new sustainable technologies could be incorporated into future HESE ventures, so please bring your research ideas.
