EWBNZ's 2019 Humanitarian Engineering conference will showcase people-centred and sustainable engineering projects that engage local communities.
Engineers from home and abroad present best practice examples and the beneficial project outcomes of a humanitarian approach to engineering.
Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the benefits and impact of socially aware engineering and will be equipped to use what they have experienced to make a positive social change.
This will provide an avenue for practitioners to share stories, the latest technological developments and lessons learnt in the industry. By demonstrating the positive outcomes of humanitarian engineering, we will encourage attendees to incorporate this approach into their everyday actions.
