Engineers Without Borders Australia and Engineers Australia have launched the Snapshot of Pro Bono Engineering report to celebrate the Year of Humanitarian Engineering. 

The Year, and this report, has highlighted the power engineers and the industry have to make significant and lasting impacts on communities in need. Pro bono engineering provides opportunities for companies to make contributions to communities through the provision of engineering services at a significantly reduced, or no fee basis.

The great thing about this report is that it is the one the first efforts across the industry to encapsulate the work that people are doing in this area. Throughout the report there are various examples of how companies are getting involved. By examining different approaches to structuring pro bono engineering, the report is effectively a call to action for those people and companies who are yet to become engaged in the area.
