Engineers for a Sustainable World Annual Conference brings together the brightest minds in sustainability, design, and engineering to find solutions to the world's toughest environmental challenge.

Design Challenge

We believe in the power of doing.

We want to make the most of the fact that we will have some of the brightest minds in sustainability in the same room. That is why we host an annual Design Challenge and task our attendees with engineering solutions to big environmental problems. 

While a surprise up until the day of the conference, we can show off our challenges from previous year. We have challenged our attendees to do everything from design a device that allows a user to wear a weeks worth of trash, to conceptualizing a sustainable Olympic Village, to throwing a mini solar car race. 

Showcase your work. 

Working on an interesting project right now? We want to hear about it! Every year we have opportunities for oral presentations and a poster showcase. Stay tuned for more information on our future design reviews and poster sessions.
