Supported by the Arconic Foundation the Forum will be hosted by Engineers Without Borders UK in London between 24-25 August.

Outputs anticipated from the 2017 Global Forum:

  • Report of key levers currently employed by EWB organisations. A summary of items presented/discussed at the event.
  • Declarations of intent to work collaboratively from attending EWB organisations. This would act as a step 1 indication of the EWB community’s intention providing a basis for collaboration, often lost if not agreed upon at the time.
