Description

What actually works in International Development?

What doesn't work?

You won't learn any of this in a textbook! Come out on October 1st from 4 to 5 pm and learn about the answers to these questions from a knowledgeable practitioner: David Oldenburger.

David is a Registered Nurse with five years of experience instructing and working as a medic in the Canadian Armed Forces. He has always enjoyed volunteering in his local community, starting with St. John’s Ambulance as a teenager.

He has had the opportunity to work on a number of international projects and locations - witnessing the good, the bad, and the ugly in International Development and Humanitarian Assistance. What continues to inspire him today is that there is so much opportunity for collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and the potential for amazing innovations to improve the lives of the global community. But from his perspective, these answers won’t come from government, or even a North American university, they come from sharing experiences, creating mutual relationships, and sharing data, research, and knowledge to overcome similar challenges.

Every month a different speaker tells detailed stories about his/her experiences while doing international work. There will be many good stories to hear throughout the months and you can join us in November if you can't make it to this one. We meet once per month on the first Sunday of the month where we can listen and engage. Meet other fantastic people who are doing work in International Development in Toronto and get connected!
