The xChange Conference

Where EWBers across the country meet, have fun, and have deep discussions about the most pressing issues of the modern day!

For over a decade, the xChange Conference has been the main gathering place used to connect, rally, and align our Chapter community. Connected by shared core values and a passion for social justice, EWBers from coast to coast generate infectious energy when they come together. Through countless karaoke nights, lightsaber battles, and hotel room board game marathons, impactful friendships and ideas have been forged at xChange Conferences over the years.

xChange Conference 2023


xChange 2023 brings together the global EWB community to foster deeper connections to inspire new ideas and collective action for change. This year, we are encouraging delegates to boldly take action to respond to the devastating effects of climate change while also preparing for future impacts. Developing effective climate adaptation strategies is a significant challenge that demands shared priorities, cohesive action, and a global mindset. And our community of young leaders across Canada and Sub-Saharan Africa practice inquiry, ingenuity and collective action toward a safer and resilient future.
