Chapters are the beating heart of EWB. Across Canada chapter members are taking thoughtful and strategic actions to create profound social change in their universities, companies, and communities.
EWB Polytechnique is a student organization at the École Polytechnique de Montréal. We are a vibrant community of students with a unique approach to global development - addressing root causes to create lasting change. The Polytechnique chapter is one of 39 across Canada working together to eradicate systemic poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa.
At EWB Polytechnique, we offer a wide range of activities: fundraising for humanitarian organizations and projects, activities relating to fair trade or sustainable development and global engineering workshops in ethics courses!
