Engineers for a Sustainable World is a nonprofit network made up of people passionate about technical sustainability from all across the world. We believe that engineers, and anyone who loves to solve problems, are key to solving today's biggest sustainability challenges. ESW members work on everything from a self contained living unit and design studio for mobile deployment in disaster relief areas, a prototype of an affordable solar-powered lamp for citizens of Haiti, and a hydroponic system for a local food pantry to produce low cost food for the community.
Work with ESW members or on your own to design, build, and implement sustainability solutions in your community.
By working with ESW, our members are gaining both the technical and professional skills to tackle the world's biggest problems
Our community is here for you, whether you are looking to get feedback on a design or nerd out about sustainabilty,
