Scotland & North East
EWB Teesside Branch meets in M6.06 at 2pm every Wednesday during term time.
Currently the group is working on a groundwater treatment project and have built a pump from 'scavenged' materials suitable for pumping water from below ground and the next stage is to develop a treatment system suitable for the production of safe drinking water.
Information coming soon
Welcome to the EWB Heriot watt homepage. We are a new branch of EWB-UK located at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh. Weekly meetings take place on Thursday evenings at 5.15pm, just off the Mechanical Engineering crush area in the James Naysmith building.
Its good times for the EWB Strathclyde branch! Not only has our group grown greatly in the past year, we are also hosting the International Development Conference for Scotland and North East England in March.
For our technical project we are working on the Gulper, a device to get the waste out of pit latrines. We're also working on a wind turbine project and have started going into schools with our outreach project. We also offer training events and have regular fundraising events.
The Manchester committee meet weekly with open meetings taking place once every two weeks for all members.
The aims of the Manchester committee are to organise projects, events, talks and research for members and to liase with the national organisation in order to work with other branches and to advertise and subsidise trips to training events across the country.
We are a fun and lively branch meeting regularly on Monday evenings. Generally this is at 8pm in the Teviot Library Bar to collaborate on our research and relax over a pint. At present we have two exciting projects running this year.
The first is to research and design a sustainable, renewable method of generating electricity or fuel for rural farmers in Poipet, Cambodia. The other is Project DIEEM an exciting an innovative project designing engineering education material to produce a mannual to introduce practical technical teaching in developing countries.
Welcome to EWB-GU's dusty old webpage!
It's languished for a while now - it claimed Glasgow and Strathclyde Universities still shared a branch until recently. Unthinkable.
So, this page will see a major overhaul very soon. Please be patient.
In the meantime, you should check out our REAL website at http://www.ewb-gu.org/
This March we thought we'd hold another conference for Scotland and North East England (though of course everyone is invited). We'll have talks, workshops, food, drinks and some general chat on the wonders of international development.
We'll be having talks and workshops discussing water pumps and wind power, past experiences and outreach into schools, among other things.
