Education, and specifically engineering design, has a lot to offer in our efforts to promote and achieve sustainable human development (SHD). A focus on SHD can be enhanced by non-disciplinary and atypical learning environments that complement core engineering and engineering design studies. This paper presents a case study of an educational innovation resulting from a collaboration between an NGO and a university.
