EWB Connect aims to facilitate a mindset shift and capability lift in the infrastructure profession towards greater social value creation and a culture of pro bono engineering.
EWB Connect is an initiative of Engineers Without Borders Australia.
Our vision is for a step change in the infrastructure profession towards greater social value creation and a culture of pro bono engineering.
Community organisations are able to meet their aspirations through engineering and enabling infrastructure.
Social value creation and a culture of pro bono become core business for individuals and engineering companies.
EWB Connect creates practical opportunities for engineering teams to learn and apply social value creation skills through pro bono work, human centered design and core business activities.
