Embedding Indigenous perspectives at Griffith University

The academic team at Griffith University has been working to authentically embed Indigenous perspectives into their engineering and design curriculum. This begins in a student’s first year at Griffith University with the EWB Challenge program, which introduces students to the importance of socially and culturally-aware design solutions.

Using human-centred design tools in community

Over 3,500 people have directly benefited from new, appropriate technology that EWB has been involved in implementing in Cambodia, Timor-Leste and Vanuatu during the past year. Almost 2000 community members have actively participated and contributed to the development of these technologies.

Find out more about how we work with communities to develop appropriate and sustainable technology.
