What is EWB@Guelph?

EWB Guelph was established in 2003 by engineering students seeking to develop a deeper understanding of how to make the world a better place.

From advocating to thousands of students on campus about fair trade products to making over a hundred school presentations within the region, EWB Guelph is highly active in the community. During its 8 year history the chapter has sent 12 students to work in developing countries around the world.

EWB works to develop social change leaders who look past simple solution to attack the root causes. Through workshops, outreach events and unique projects students gain the vision and skills necessary to improve communities around the globe. Students work within the School of Engineering to add development topics to courses, connect design projects to overseas projects and put together discussion panels with faculty and professionals.

In the past year EWB has accomplished the following:
