Media: Meet the University of Luxembourg students who want to bring reliable electricity and clean water to rural residents in India, Fiji and Columbia.
Like its precursor Doctors Without Borders, Engineers Without Borders hopes to deliver practical aid around the world. But until one year ago, there was no Luxembourg chapter.
For its December cover story, Delano speaks with current and former University of Luxembourg students who are linking up to give rural residents in the developing world a leg up. This includes David Norta, a PhD candidate and president of Engineers Without Borders Luxembourg, who was inspired to work on hydrokinetic turbines during a voluntary mission in Fiji.
Then there are twice as many Chinese living in Luxembourg as Swedes. So why are natives of the Middle Kingdom so discreet? Meanwhile, China’s largest bank has entered the European investment market as part of big push into new markets, both globally and in the Grand Duchy. And a former steel mill in Differdange has attracted everyone from artists to architects to the new “creativity hub”.
Also in this issue: Luxembourg City is full of fine jewellers for the most special occasion and for everyday flair; restaurant Antoine Scholer has a secret place in the woods; and Chicago native Dino Diviacchi, founder of Muzic Maestro, shares his three favourite music spots in Luxembourg.
