The events team organizes events for the EWB community which are aimed to bring members together and collectively learn and share knowledge about project execution in developing countries. We like to use the events as an engagement platform for our engineers, prospective volunteers and partners – a place where we can share knowledge and learn from each other expertise. Typical examples of recurring events are the Meet & Greet, in which project updates are shared and the volunteers can meet with each other accompanied with some drinks and interesting discussions, and the Hang-Out, which are casual social gatherings such as a movie night, a beach clean-up, bar hopping, etc.
At the moment, there are few more events under development like symposium, design challenges, workshops, think tanks, masterclasses, etc and for this reason – we are looking to a new enthusiast to join the events group.
There are some other tasks you may be involved in like supporting the project teams with their events such as fundraising activities. The events team aims to organise interesting, fun and inspiring events that contribute to a strong EWB community.
The events team currently consists out of Irina and Tessa, we are looking for 1 or 2 persons who would like to join us. Besides organising the events, we also like to do fun team building activities (the bars need to checked first before going hosting a bar hopping event, right?)
All the openings at Engineers without Borders are unpaid volunteer positions. We dedicate our free time to improve life in developing countries and have fun and a great learning experience by doing so. Our only expectation is that you dedicate the amount of free time you feel comfortable with and commit to this.
