Thought we’d share a great interview with EWB-USA co-founder, Bernard Amadei. He talks about his many experiences that led him to utilize technology for the common good, including his time as a performance clown. Amadei is also chair of global engineering at the University of Colorado-Boulder and author of “Engineering for Sustainable Human Development: A Guide to Successful Small-Scale Community Projects.”

Engineers Without Borders-USA (EWB-USA) is an NGO created to “support community-driven development programs worldwide…that design and implement sustainable engineering projects, while creating transformative experiences that enrich global perspectives and create responsible leaders.” It has so far recruited 15,000 members in 365 chapters across 39 countries.
