Engineers Without Borders (EWB) celebrated their 10 year anniversary with an amzing Gala Dinner at Melbourne's Docklands.
The event celebrated EWB's achievements over the last 10 years. Their contributions to humanitarian engineering have improved conditions and empowered local communities both internationally and in Australia.
The Gala Dinner attracted over 400 professionals from around Australia including engineering CEOs, philanthropists, education institutions, industry groups, EWB members and leaders in humanitarian engineering. The highlights were some inspirational speakers from parterships in Cambodia and Australia and a cracking silent auction with items like Usain Bolt's running shoes and a Bob Dylan signed guitar.
David Lock Associates is a proud corporate partner of Engineers Without Borders, and are involved in the Engineers Without Borders Yorta Yorta Nation Partnership, working with the Yorta Yorta Aboriginal Nation Corportation, GHD and EWB.

Congratulations to EWB on a wonderful 10 years! Love your work.
July 7-14 is NAIDOC week, time to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
As part of the festivites, DLA participated in NAIDOC week celebrations in Barmah (near Echuca) on Yorta Yorta County, where we helped to organise and run activities like cooking using DIY solar power, geo-tagging culturally significant sites and water actvities; all seeking to combine traditional cultural knowledge with modern techniques.
It was a beautiful day, and a gorgeous setting - perfect for a celebration! NAIDOC week is a great time to reflect on how to further develop cross-cultural partnerships and and raise awareness of Aboriginal Culture.
Working on a pro bono basis, DLA are developing a Vision Document that paints a picture for the future use of Yorta Yorta nation assets and places. This will lead to self determination, business development, training and cultural development and renaissance benefiting the Yorta Yorta Nation and the wider community.
