The purpose of this booklet is to supply engineering educators with a real-life case learn that may be introduced into latest classes to aid bridge the space among engineering and the worldwide global. The case examine specializes in how our engineering learn of alternative typical plant fibers for soil erosion regulate led us to small villages in Kerala, India, the place marginalized girls staff frequently stand waste deep in water a number of hours an afternoon, fresh and beat coconuts via hand, and separate and spin coconut (coir) fibers into yarn through hand, for extraordinarily low wages. The case examine presents perception into the 3 dimensions of sustainability (technocentric, ecocentric, and sociocentric) and the way they arrive jointly in a standard engineering challenge.
