About Rachel


Sustainable Urban Futures

This residential is a fantastic way to learn how studying a whole variety of university degrees could empower you to make a difference to Sustainable Development, and find out more about studying at a top university. Students come together as part of a team, designing and building a temporary “home” based on informal settlement shelters. They learn about different cultures and work within budgets, designing and innovating to make the shelter a comfortable, practical space to live and work.
