People, everywhere deserve a world where they can achieve their potential and live healthy, happy lives. The reality today is far from this and many of us still lack access to basic services. All of us are at risk from resource constraints, the effects of climate change, increasing urbanisation and a global population that is rapidly expanding.
We know that engineering is the solution. We know that engineering is capable of addressing global challenges and enabling sustainable human development. Engineers Without Borders UK is using engineering as the catalyst for the change that the world needs.
We are leading a growing movement for change and we need your support. This strategy serves as a call to action for engineers, for the engineering community and for the whole of society.
READ OUR NEW STRATEGY
is a world where people everywhere have equal access to the benefits of engineering
is to lead a movement that inspires, enables and influences global responsibility through engineering
Engineers Without Borders UK leads a movement for change by recognising and promoting the vital role of engineering and engineers in our collective future.
We believe that by highlighting the importance of putting people first we can inspire engineers to place much greater importance on whether engineering solutions are ethical, culturally sensitive and environmentally sound. We think that if people understand and appreciate the potential impact that engineering, and engineers, can have on our lives then more people will become engineers. We can enable our partners, and the communities they work in, to enhance their engineering capacity and use it to catalyse the transformative change that we seek around the world. We also know that, through engineering, we can influence individuals to be active global citizens, and organisations and society to be more globally responsible.
We want the people for whom we are creating the future, our children and our grandchildren, to be informed and educated about what that future might look like and give them the opportunity and ability to change it. To create a different future, we need the next generation to be global citizens today and the globally responsible engineers of tomorrow.
Our new strategy is available to read online below. This document sets our agenda for 2016-21 and clearly lays out the change that we want to lead in the engineering community and wider society to ensure people everywhere have equal access to the benefits of engineering.
This strategy serves as a call to action for engineers, for the engineering community and for the whole of society. We know that together, we can create a world where people, everywhere have equal access to the benefits of engineering.
