Approach

EWB-UK's approach puts students and young professionals at the centre of our operations, providing them with resources and contact to help them become development professionals

 

Holistic Engineering - we work with an interdisciplinary approach that takes into consideration the local knowledge, economy, culture and environment.

Active Partnerships - we build long term relationships and work in collaboration with communities and local organisations

People Participation - we believe in demand-led development and participatory change.

Small Footprint - we want to adopt a sustainable use of natural resources and minimise any impact to the local environment, biodiversity or global climate.

Appropriate Technology - we adapt existing low-risk technology and apply modern engineering methods.
