Join us for our 2nd WASH webinar of the year from 11:30 - 12:30 PM (UTC-6) to learn about the theory of change within a WASH context (Water, Sanitation & Hygiene). As we seek to work beyond the walls, community services is an essential component to our building and infrastructure services. 

We will be discussing the application of behavior change theories in WASH and why it is important to consider. Many well-intentioned WASH programs have failed because of the inability to address the social components of certain contexts. Without using behavior change knowledge to create a WASH theory of change, communities will resort back to unhealthy WASH behaviors that severely impact health and wellness.

This webinar will be led by Matt Chan, former EMI intern and WASH engineer. We are pleased to offer AIA credit as we share an introduction to behavior change in WASH, the science of habits, and behavior change models and applications. Please register in order to receive the link to this online webinar!

Speaker Bio
Matt is a former EMI intern who is currently wrapping up another 6-month term as a WASH engineer with EMI Cambodia. He grew up in Toronto, Canada where he completed his bachelor's degree in mechatronics engineering before God led him towards a master's degree in civil engineering with a WASH focus. During his most recent term with EMI Cambodia, he has been developing the capacity of the water team through leading WASH trainings, strategy sessions, and initiating community engagements for WASH. Outside of engineering, he is passionate about theology and church planting in Toronto but is looking forward for the chance of using these tools internationally if/when God calls.
