A humanitarian impact sprint
Join us for a 42 hour digital event with participants from different countries uniting to bounce ideas and come up with innovative solutions. Let’s work together to create a lasting impact for the communities who need it the most. Welcome!
Engineering for Humanity is a two-day virtual event organized by Engineers Without Borders Sweden (EWB-SWE) and openhack where participants will collaborate to solve humanitarian engineering challenges. The event takes place online during a 42-hour period, between 11th - 13th of March 2022.
The event aims to boost the impact of EWB-SWE’s and openhack’s work to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs.) The cases are provided by the Swedish, Norwegian, German and Finnish EWB organizations and derive from ongoing international projects.
The goal is to boost the impact of EWB’s international projects and enable large scale collaboration and foster innovation on humanitarian challenges addressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's). This will be pursued by enabling further development and implementation of the most promising solutions, through collaboration and support from partners and interested stakeholders.
