International Women's Day Thinking Development Book Launch

Sat, 03/08/2014 - 04:01 -- Linda O'Halloran

Today, we're very proud to mark International Women's Day with the launch of our long-awaited book.

The book is easily accessed by everyone, and we're sharing it online for free! So, please take a look, share the link with those interested in sustainable development, participatory design, urban planning and women's education, and tell us what you think: bit.ly/TDBook! If you would like to make a donation please click here for quick and secure donations through Virgin Money Giving.

We have always aimed to share our work and lessons learned as accessibly and widely as possible to help future disaster responses be more effective, efficient and positive. This book is a part of that mission. It outlines our work to design and build a flagship girls' school in Port-au-Prince with one of #Haiti's largest educators of women, from our design principles to the planning process to the project proposal. 

We owe the beautiful layout to the exceptionally talented and professional SVIDesign, and the contents to many 10s of Thinking Development volunteers who've invested lots of knowledge, time, skills and passion into creating something worth writing about. Huge thanks everyone involved.

Wishing you all an inspiring, empowering and peaceful International Women's Day!
