Weekly Email #2 – Let’s get down to business!

How’s the long weekend so far? Hope you are taking it easy!

Engineers Without Borders is starting up our regular routine of group work and learning sessions again! We have lots to talk about on the next GM, so allow us to give you a quick overview for the next General Meeting

1) 2nd General Meeting of the Term! – Engineering 5 Room 2004 – Tuesday May 20th 5:30 – 7:00pm

General Meeting - Tuesday May 20th 5:30 – 7:00pm
Learning Session: A Primer on Systemic Change: The EWB mindset on approaching practical problems
Our Team Leads will be explaining to the group why EWB prefers to solve problems such as “go to the root of the problem” and “Systemic Change”. This is a great time to learn how EWB operates at a more detailed level than the one we provided during the first GM. Lend us your ears and share your questions about what we do on campus and our goals.

Group Work: Meet the Team Leads and find out how you can contribute!
After the learning session, the Team leads will stay to explain the duties that we have for the term and how you can help. We have 6 teams that would need people to help achieve our goals. These teams include Big Events, Strategy, Research, Youth Engagement, Professional Engagement and People. You are free to choose whatever team lead you want to help each week!

We encourage you to invite friends on campus or around Waterloo! This can be for one meeting or for all of them. All departments of UW are invited!

Before we go, we would like to share with you a satirical video about why we should value sustainable development and effective communication with the other people we work with outside of EWB.
