    For 17 years EWB Australia has been nurturing the growth of ‘humanitarian engineering’ through education. We have cultivated and activated a movement of new-look engineers. They are future-fit professionals, grounded with a community-first mindset and equipped with activated social and technical skills. They are capable of sensitively ideating solutions for global issues, at all levels. Yet we live and learn within structures and power imbalances that reinforce the very issues we are trying to solve. How can we support individuals, organisations and the sector to be enabled to
