Our Mission / Objective

Engineers Without Borders Australia (EWB) is a member-based, community organisation that creates social value through engineering. Through partnership and collaboration we focus on developing skills, knowledge and appropriate engineering solutions.

Vision:

Everyone has access to the engineering knowledge and resources required to lead a life of opportunity, free from poverty.

Mission:

We connect, educate and empower people through humanitarian engineering.

Humanitarian engineering uses a people centered, strength based approach to improve community health, well being and opportunity.

Aims:

Aim 1: Solutions for Social Change – We will enable appropriate solutions to alleviate poverty and accelerate inclusive, sustainable development through engineering and technology.

Aim 2: Redefining Engineering – We will redefine engineering as a community centered profession that provides leadership in the creation of a more sustainable and inclusive world.

Aim 3: A Global Movement – We will inspire and mobilise a global community in engineering for social change.
