What is EWB SDG Day?

For now, we’re stuck with virtual meetings and Zoom fatigue, so why not make it more interesting!

EWB SDG Day takes place on 4th March which is also World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development. It sees individuals and companies collaborating to raise awareness of the UN SDGs while supporting the work of Engineers Without Borders in communities around the world.

How to participate

Simply register yourself, or register your workplace and get your whole team involved, and participate in one of the following ways, it’s that easy. 


  • Select one (or more) of the UN SDGs which you would like to promote
  • Create a virtual background to represent that Goal and what it means to you
  • Use this during EWB SDG Day for your virtual meetings
  • Alternatively you can post a photo of yourself with a message “I‘m supporting  Goal X on EWB SDG Day because…”


  • Raise awareness of your SDG with your colleagues and network by sharing a screen grab of you and your background on social media with the hashtag #EWBSDG
  • Don’t forget to tag EWB Ireland so we can share it and increase the reach


  • Individuals can donate to our work through the EWB website to participate.
  • Companies can make one donation on behalf of their whole team

Thank you for your support, we look forward to seeing the creative ways you promote your SDG on 4th March!
