EWB UK Session details
Engineers Without Borders UK has a new strategy due for launch in May 2021. This has given us the opportunity to think strategically about our impact, and role in addressing global challenges. We have also collaborated with Engineers Without Borders South Africa and USA on the Engineering for People Design Challenge since 2018 and we’ve gained significant insights into how structured collaboration is key to leverage the potential of our global movement.
