Secret #3: We’re offering an exclusive pre-conference workshop.
EWB-USA is partnering with the Register of Engineers for Disaster Relief (REDR UK) to offer an exclusive one day workshop on what life is like as a humanitarian aid worker. Visit the summit website for more details on what is included in this event. REDR UK is almost exclusively focused in London, making this a rare and exciting addition to the summit weekend.
