Our International Projects strive to achieve sustainable and long-term positive impact, for local communities in low-income areas and the earth as a whole. Our international projects are always carried out in collaboration with local grass-root organisations and we strive to empower the local communities where projects are implemented. We focus on energy, waste management, water, sanitation, food production and processing and digitalization in low-income areas. Many initiatives are connected to schools and aim to improve the quality of education, and some are related to the health sector. We engage exclusively in projects with potential to contribute to long-term positive development and only in safe and conflict-free areas. Our international projects include knowledge-sharing, and sometimes monetary support.
We have a passionate and experienced volunteer network of professionals and students who help make a difference and influence our work. We are engineers, architects, scientists, educators, healthcare professionals, administrators and many others. You can be active in projects, in the business or passive support. We collaborate with technical colleges and universities, with organizations and the business community.

Be part of inspiring children
Sweden currently has a shortage of engineers, a profession that historically has been a very homogenous group. Because of this, EWB-SWE inform and inspire children to seek an education in engineering or technology. This is accomplished by assisting students with their studies, acting as role-models, and showing a non-conventional perspective on science, technology and engineering.
Develop your leadership and technology skills by participating in the seminars and activities we organize.
