Engineers for a Sustainable World National Conference Trip

Although their campaign has concluded, if you would still like to make a donation to Engineers for a Sustainable World you may always do so here.


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 sustainability solutions for our campus, region, and world. People around campus might categorize us as outdoorsy, bike-riding vegetarians, but our consistent motto is GO GREEN!

Our Project

With our National Chapter status, we are fortunate enough to be in constant communication with other collegiate chapters and are hoping to continue connecting with them by raising $5,000 and sending 10 students to the national ESW conference in Berkeley, California. 

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!

Past Experience

In past years, our ESW group has traveled to almost every regional and national ESW conference. From these experiences, we have been able to bring back awesome ideas and incorporate them into our own projects! A few of our favorite projects include but are not limited to: Solar Panel Cart (which is typically used for making smoothies for fellow engineering students), Hydroponics Structure and the construction of Rain Gardens in the Pittsburgh area. All of these ideas have had some inspiration from a conference of some sort and we cannot wait to see what this year's conference has in store for us.

Choose a giving level



Every penny helps out. We really appreciate your donations and cannot wait to update everyone during the conference duration.


Ground Transportation

Our members will need to get around the city in order to attend all of the events on the schedule. Unfortunately, our cars are not making the trip to California with us, so help us to make sure we get where we need to go!


Registration Fee

Every person attending the conference will have to pay the base registration fee to receive all of the benefits of the 4-day learning experience. This donation amount will let a member participate in the conference!


Round Trip Air Fair

Your contribution of this amount will allow for one of our members to travel to and from Berkeley, California. Help multiple members fly like birds in the sky!!


Magical Gift

This amount of sponsorship will roughly pay for two ESW members to attend the national conference!!! When would you like your hug?!
