 The Master of Disaster, Design and Development has just been announced as a post graduate offering by The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology – and we couldn’t be more impressed.

Intended to improve the capacity of design professionals to respond and manage current and future disaster situations through an enhanced understanding and application of principles, the Master of Disaster offers an exciting angle on a growing issue – and an incredible post-nominal for your business card!

BE Collective is well aware of the need for reactive, flexible and sustainable accommodation solutions in response to natural disasters, and have showcased our design for an Emergency Shelter in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane as part of the Emergency Shelter Exhibition, raising tens of thousands of dollars for peoples displaced by natural disasters. More information on our contribution here.

Our Managing Director John Tuxworth featured a documentary produced by the Queensland University of Technology entitled Bouncing Back. He was also recently recognised in theQueensland State Parliament for BE Collective’s contribution during and post the Cyclone Marcia event in 2015.

A big Congratulations RMIT on a great initiative!
