The EWB National Conference is Canada's largest annual international development conference. Held annually in January or February, it brings together hundreds of student leaders and professional engineers from across the country to explore and discuss the complexity of international development. In the past, our delegates have been challenged and inspired by speakers such as Stephen Lewis (UN Special Envoy to Africa) in 2004, Lloyd Axworthy (former Minister of Foreign Affairs) in 2005, Robert Chambers (international development author) and Lt. General Roméo Dallaire (Force Commander of the United Nations Mission to Rwanda) in 2006, The Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean (Governor General of Canada) in 2007, and Ralph Nader (US political activist) in 2008. This conference archive website pulls together audio, video and photos from all previous EWB conferences, and we invite you to relive some of these exciting speeches by browsing through our past conferences below.
