EWB New Zeeland
Our vision is a world where everyone has the access to the engineering knowledge and resources required to lead a life of opportunity, free from poverty. We connect, educate and empower people through humanitarian engineering. Humanitarian engineering uses a people centred, strength based approach to improve community health, well-being and opportunity. We do this by:
- Working in partnership to address a lack of access to basic human needs such as clean water, sanitation and hygiene, energy, basic infrastructure, waste systems, information communication technology and engineering education.
- Educating and training New Zealand students, engineers and the wider community on issues including sustainable development, appropriate technology, poverty and the power of humanitarian engineering.
- Leading a movement of like-minded people with strong values and a passion for humanitarian engineering within New Zealand and overseas
