Description
This event forms part of Coventry University & HEED's three-part live webinar series and coffee mornings, which are designed to challenge and engage multi-level actor’s central to solving the humanitarian energy access challenge. In this webinar, we look to explore what “responsibility” means in the context of humanitarian energy innovation, and if the sector can remain responsible in for its innovation. What is the role of private sector partners in relation to challenges of community- design and the “destruction” which can result from innovation? What skills, resources, and approaches do those working in the humanitarian energy sector need to participate in “responsible” innovation? What understandings of innovation feel most useful for the humanitarian energy sector; is innovation even an appropriate goal to strive for in these settings?
