Get involved


We love engaging with those interested in our work. There are many different ways in which you or your organisation can contribute. Share your own knowledge by writing a Story of Change; enter vibrant discussions about small-scale appropriate technologies and skills; collaborate with us on a project; join our translation team; or see how you can bring sustainable development issues to the forefront of higher education.

Here’s a brief run-through of ways YOU can get involved:

Share your experience – for anyone who has worked on small-scale sustainable development projects before, you can share your story with us – we will publish it on our website. Your wisdom may get implemented elsewhere.

Collaborate with Practical Answers – we would love to meet new potential partners. If you are in a relevant NGO, community group, small business, or other.

Translate for us – do you speak more than one language? We’d love your help in translating our documents to as many languages as possible. Join our translation team – an energetic team of individuals and organisations from all over the world using their skills to help increase Practical Answers outreach and improve even more lives.

Contribute your technical and development skills and experience – do you have skills and experience in the areas of technology and development? Would you like to contribute to a question and answer forum, Knowledge Point, entering vibrant discussions with humanitarian staff and others?

Get involved as an academic or student – the global dimension in engineering education (GDEE) initiative is another collaborative project in which Practical Answers is involved. NGOs and Universities are coming together, aiming to integrate more sustainable human development issues into technical University courses. To get involved in this exciting project.

Alternatively, if you think of another way you’d like to get involved, contact us and let us know.
