The National Volunteer Training Weekend (NVTW) is a whole weekend of training and networking for EWB-UK volunteers. It is designed by us - the members - for us, and aims to make EWB-UK a greater organisation. This year it is being hosted by the University of Birmingham. Get your ticket now and join us.

 
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Doug Harper as Chief Executive of Engineers Without Borders UK.
We look forward to Doug joining EWB-UK on Monday 18 August. 
 
 
 

Engineers Without Borders UK’s vision is a world where everyone has access to the engineering they need for a life free from poverty.  Through our members, partners and activities we inspire, inform and support people to respond to global challenges.  We work to find new paths of sustainable development and to create opportunities to harness appropriate technology and engineering skills to enhance people’s lives. 

 
The festival is coming to Bristol! Join us on 13th and 14th of September in a stunning venue for inspiring talks, practical workshops, challenging debates and thought provoking films amidst a colourful atmosphere of the best international music and food. Tickets are selling fast so book early to avoid disappointment from the venue website.
 
This year, EWB UK is sending 25 placement volunteers to 12 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America. Our volunteers are setting off to work with our partner organisations to have a direct impact on reducing poverty in their communities while learning how to best use their engineering skills to remove barriers to human development.
 
Consider supporting the Placements Appeal 2014 to help us to ensure that this programme is a success this year and in the future.
