Solar Beech BBQ in Brighton Sat 15 Aug - Engineers Without Borders

Cooking in developing countries is plagued with all kinds of problems. The fetching and cooking of firewood causes deforestation and lung disease. Leaving the relative safety of a refugee camp or slum also exposes people, particularly women and children, to robbery and exploitation.

Solar cooking is a sustainable method that involves much less work and far fewer health risks.

Engineers Without Borders will be meeting at Brighton University 11AM in the morning to build the solar cookers, and then going out during the afternoon to cook with them! All materials will be provided, but don't forget your frisbees, sunglasses and bucket and spade! Lunch will be catered, we will be eating our BBQd food at about 3PM.

The workshop costs £10 for all,
time; Saturday, August 15 at 11:00am

I've been associated with an environmental charity sunseed for 10 years that uses Solar power for all its eclectricity and hot water needs. They have also got a range of solar cookers that get a lot of use; but thats in Spain. Brave of EWB to try it in the UK, lets hope for good weather.
