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.
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.

The EWB-UK Academic Training Day is a fantastic opportunity for engineering & technical design academics interested in international development to get more involved, include it in their teaching and develop their own research. We are running one in Edinburgh on 10th September and another in London on 18th September.
