Engineers Without Borders Australia

 

Description

Engineers Without Borders Australia (EWB) is a non-profit organisation that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of disadvantaged communities in the Asia Pacific region through humanitarian engineering. EWB's projects address a lack of access to basic human needs such as clean water, sanitation and hygiene, energy, basic infrastructure, waste systems, information communication technology and engineering education. EWB additionally aims to educate and train Australian students, engineers and the wider community on issues including sustainable development, appropriate technology, poverty and the power of humanitarian engineering.

In Australia, EWB's work includes a focus on sustainable engineering in Indigenous communities. Past activities conducted as part of the EWB's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander program include:

EWB is a membership-based organisation with chapters in each Australian state.
