Majd Mashharawi with Rania Qawasma

Rescheduled after a planned visit earlier this year was scuttled by visa issues, community entrepreneur Majd Mashhawari is here from her home in Gaza, Palestine where she is an engineer, the CEO of GreenCake, a startup that manufactures bricks from recycled materials, and has also helped develop a off-the-grid solar power kit called SunBox. She will discuss developments and the situation in Gaza, and will be joined in conversation here by Rania Qawasma, Seattle architect, founder of Architecture for Refugees USA and a board member of Architects Without Borders. Fast Company cited Majd Mashhawari as one of the Most Creative People in Business for 2018.

Co-presented with ARCHITECTURE FOR REFUGEES USA and ARCHITECTS WITHOUT BORDERS.
