Our Programs

Each of our programmes has a defined high level objective to help explain the overall purpose and goal of the programme. We have developed these objectives so that they align with our vision, a process we undertook using a programme logic (theory of change) as a tool.

Academic Research:
Facilitate connections between researchers and communities to support the meaningful application and development and innovation of humanitarian engineering focussed technology.

Showcase good practice in humanitarian engineering and latest technological developments and provide an avenue for practitioners to share stories and lessons learnt.

Member Events:
Foster and inspire a network of humanitarian engineering leaders

Pathways to Development:
EWB shares expert experience to develop the skills and knowledge of humanitarian engineers

Remote Technical Support:
Support and strengthen local technical and engineering sector through connections with network of engineering professionals for peer review and advice.

Schools Outreach:
Expose young people to humanitarian engineering to encourage and inspire them into technology-based careers.

Technical Placements:
Build humanitarian engineering capability within the local technical and engineering sector through peer to peer knowledge exchange.

    Walk for Water

    Walk for Water 2020

    Can you carry 20L of water over 6km every single day? These are the lengths that women and girls have to go to in order to access safe drinking water. 

    Join us on the 20th of March, at 4pm to raise awareness for the plight of woman and girls having to carry large amounts of water over long distances due to the inaccessibility of water in their society. Sign up with a team of 4-5 people who will walk a 6km+ route while completing challenges at our hosting companies along the way.

    Participants will fundraise by seeking sponsorships from friends and family which will contribute towards our EWBNZ overseas programmes that aim to make engineering more accessible in the South Pacific and New Zealand.

    Thanks to GHD, Beca, Watercare, Harrison Grierson and Stantec for sponsoring and hosting us this year. Without them, this would not be possible.

    Bring your friends, bring your family for a great afternoon out supporting a great cause today! For those who are interested but cannot gather a team, no problem! Sign-up today and we can build a team for you where you can meet new people too!

    Sign-up with our form below, and stay tuned to our Facebook event page and your emails for future updates!
