Engineers for a Sustainable World Conference 2019

Who We Are:

The Engineers for a Sustainable World – Pitt Chapter (ESW) is comprised of engineering majors of all disciplines and non-engineering majors with an interest in sustainability. Our mission is to develop and design sustainable solutions for our campus, region, and world.

Our Project:

As part of an international organization, we are fortunate enough to be in constant communication with other collegiate chapters and are hoping to continue connecting with them by raising $1,000 and sending eleven students to the national ESW conference in El Paso, Texas.

The national conference provides us with a wealth of information, access to keynote speakers, and the latest initiatives that we are then able to bring back to the Pitt campus to enhance both our organization and the University as a whole. We are hoping that our willingness to learn and grow as an organization inspires you to help support our trip there!

How You Can Help Us:

It is up to us to raise the additional $1,000 we need to get to the conference and YOU can help us get there. Please, consider making a tax-deductible donation to our club and help us ultimately help you. 

We are incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to meet with fellow sustainably-minded individuals looking to make an impact in the world and hope that you will consider supporting Engineers for a Sustainable World – University of Pittsburgh Chapter.

With your support, we know that we can reach our $1,000 goal.

And, so you know how your donation will be spent, here’s our overall budget breakdown:

Current Projects:

In past years, our ESW group has traveled to almost every national ESW conference. From these experiences, we have been able to bring back awesome ideas and incorporate them into our own projects!

Our Students Taking on Runoff Management (STORM) project team is working on a rain garden project in Oakland and has received funding through ESW Global’s Build Day grant program. STORM is currently in the design and materials process and Build Day will take place in the end of March to build the rain garden. Our Home Energy Assessment Team (HEAT) has provided Winterization Workshops this year to help students insulate their homes for the winter to cut heating costs. Our Solar Panel Cart, which is typically used to make smoothies, is almost up and running again this year as well, thanks to the Solar Cart project team leaders. 

These ideas have all been inspired by past ESW conferences, and we cannot wait to see what this year’s conference has in store for us!
