Declan has been successful in gaining a position on the Engineers Without Borders (EWB) Dialogue on Development expedition to travel the Murray Darling Basin meeting with traditional owners over a two-and-a-half week period in October 2013.

Engineers Without Borders (EWB) is an charity active in the Hunter whose work is closely modelled off the successful Doctors Without Borders (MSF) organisation. EWB promotes humanitarian engineering principles and works actively in developing counties (such as Cambodia) to empower local people with best practice engineering expertise. In the Hunter, EWB aims to ‘create a culture of engineering in the Hunter in which every engineer is empowered to make the world a better place.’

My participation in the upcoming Dialogues on Development tour features an unprecedented fortnight long professional development opportunity to meet with local aboriginal people travelling throughout the entirety of the Murray Darling Basin, from Brisbane to Adelaide (and then onto Melbourne), discussing the traditional cultural importance of the land, the importance of cooperative development and to gain a greater understanding of the challenges facing Aboriginal people in modern Australia. In addition to this the nature of the program will meeting with other engineering professionals and gaining from their knowledge and insight as active members in this field in Australia.

Knowledge gained on the trip is to be shared back into Declan's community through professional practice, presentations and media interlinkages. Declan will be blogging live whilst travelling, as well as contributing to the live EWB trip map: http://www.ewb.org.au/explore/initiatives/dialogues/dialogues-on-development-murray-darling-interactive-map
