and a culture of pro bono in
engineering & infrastructure development
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.
Engineers Without Borders Australia (EWB) is a member-based, community organisation that creates social value through engineering. Through partnerships and collaboration, we focus on developing skills, knowledge and appropriate engineering solutions. Our vision is a world where everyone has access to the engineering knowledge and resources required to lead a life of opportunity, free from poverty.
Our vision is for social value to be created through appropriate solutions and sustainable infrastructure development, and that, a culture of pro bono is developed in the Australian engineering sector.
