Building new skills and helping the community with Fusion 360

Approximately 900 children under the age of 5 die each day from illnesses related to the lack of clean drinking water or adequate sanitation. However, design can make a difference and be a tool for change in areas with poor sanitation and unsafe drinking water. The Community Plumbing Challenge was an exciting initiative that brought together plumbers, metalworkers, architects, and engineers from around the world to work alongside Autodesk Student Experts to address sanitation issues through the use of Autodesk Fusion 360.  This video introduces you to Jane, a member of the community in Diepsloot, South Africa who embraced the opportunity to learn Fusion 360 as part of the Community Plumbing Challenge, giving her new skills for  better employment.
