Engineers Without Borders-USA 2008 Conference
March 6, 2008

Every 15 seconds a child dies due to lack of basic sanitation and access to clean drinking water. Engineers are at the forefront of combating these issues by developing sustainable solutions to improve the quality of life for people worldwide.

March 27th through 30th, Engineers Without Borders-USA (EWB-USA) will host its annual international conference at the University of Washington campus in Seattle. Focused on the theme “Sustainable Engineering, Global Health,” more than 500 attendees will discuss how Engineers Without Borders-USA volunteers are creating solutions that help affect the reality that one in six people do not have access to clean, safe drinking water and two in five people lack basic sanitation worldwide.

The three-day conference in Seattle brings together engineering experts from all over the world to share stories, insight and expertise.

Additional details on the conference can be found at on EWB-USA’s website.
