Volunteers for EWB Örebro

Through humanitarian engineering, we engage, inspire and unite people to build a sustainable future. Engineers Without Borders Sweden works to address challenges linked to the Sustainable Development Goals, both in Sweden and around the globe. Through improvements in education, equality, energy poverty and access to water and sanitation we strive to make a sustainable and long-term impact with our work, for local communities and the Earth as a whole.

Engineers Without Borders work with five main areas: International projects, Inspire youth, The Reflective Engineer, Engineer to Engineer and OpenHack. To read more about these areas please visit https://www.ewb-swe.org/organisation
