Then this course is being designed and delivered with you in mind.

Due to covid-19 restrictions, preventing volunteers from attending our in person programs in Peru for 2020, we are launching a pilot remote online program, starting with 2 day courses and eventually delivering full on 1-2 weeks courses with projects, certifications and huge discounts for the in person program if certified from the online training.

These courses will provide some of the theoretical education received when attending the in person program in Peru. Thus you can take these as standalone from anywhere in the world (with a proper internet connection) and use the material learned to affect your own communities and regions OR leverage that learning back to the in person program and receive a discount since your knowledge would be valuable to the program, allowing you to focus more on practical development and exploration while in Peru.

Since this is a pilot program, we are delivering it as a huge discount to the regular calculated price of delivering this material and being part of this pilot ensures preparation for post covid volunteering or further discounts for the upcoming certified week long courses.

Here is a brief overview of the courses being delivered in our pilot program:

Day 1

Intro to Renewable Energy (Nick Warren, Co-Founder and former Executive Director of WindAid Institute)

Small Scale Solutions / Microgrids (TBA)

Founding and Funding Panel Discussion + Q&A (Yoann Rey Ricord, Founder of AKUU and former long term volunteer)

Day 2

Open source design and manufacture of wind turbines (in your garage) (Ross Picken, Head of Engineering at Windaid Institute)

Resource & Community Assessments for Micro Renewable Systems (Stuart Llewellyn, former long term volunteer, Remote monitoring system developer and current project lead for El Chorro)

Social Entrepreneurship Panel Discussion + Q&A (Michael Verkamp, Original Founder of Windaid)
