The Global Affairs Center at Shoreline Community College, directed by Larry Fuell, will present a free program Tuesday, April 5, that focuses on the collaboration between Seattle-based PATH, a non-profit global health organization and outdoor equipment company MSR (Mountain Safety Research).
The two organizations have been working together for several years to bring low-cost community water purification systems to developing countries. Program attendees will see a demonstration of one particular device that they developed together.
Jesse Schubert, a Technical Officer with PATH, and Patrick Diller, a Marketing Manager with MSR Global Health, will explain how their partnership has evolved over several years, with each side bringing its particular expertise to the collaboration. Patty Russell, Managing Director of FSG, will moderate the discussion.
The program starts at 7 p.m., and is open to the public. Parking on campus in the evening is free.
