Join us for a virtual information session to learn how you and your organization can benefit from E4C’s Impact Projects. We’ll hear from Impact Project partners about how the program expedited sustainability goals. We’ll also share tips about the application process for the 2024 cycle of projects and answer your questions.
Achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals requires the collective capacity of the global workforce – especially the engineers. Annually, E4C’s Impact Projects match skilled and diverse early-career technical practitioners with organizations worldwide to advance their sustainability objectives and improve the quality of life of vulnerable communities. Co-designed with organizations ranging from academic institutions, non-profits, social enterprises, private sector, and multilateral agencies, Impact Projects deliver transformative support through research, human-centered design, and advancement of organizational workflows.
