Engineering with Communities
What we doEngineering with Communities

EWB works with community partners in Australia and Asia to facilitate meaningful and lasting change.

Our philosophy is based on a community centered approach, using our engineering knowledge and resources to bridge self-identified gaps in access to community health, wellbeing and opportunity. We focus on sustained engagement to build strong relationships and best practice models, strategically deploying people to achieve long-term impact through knowledge sharing and sector building.
