How can I get involved?
Our chapter is made up of three main portfolios. Members can get engaged through the portfolios, retreats, conferences, and events! If you want to constantly stay updated on what we are doing then join our list here. Our prime method of communication is through Slack. All the portfolios will be active on this platform and post different ways for members to get involved. You can ask questions and get all the latest details through Slack. Find out about how to join Slack through this link:
1. Food Systems
EWB Ryerson’s Food System portfolio is a team who cares about the source of your next coffee. Food Systems at Ryerson looks to host events that educate and advocate for students on the local food processes within Toronto. This empowers our very own to make the best decisions with their food choices. From Fairtrade, to the relationship with the producers, to getting Ryerson Fairtrade certified— we are the leaders in sustainable consumerism. We invite you to help us push our campus into becoming a more ethical and mindful environment!
Slack: #foodsystems and #fairtrade

2. Evolving Engineering (EE)
Engineers have become known as creators or builders, but one cannot forget one of the foundations that engineering is built upon: problem solving. The Evolving Engineering portfolio is dedicated to unlocking the hidden potential of the engineering profession. We want to explore beyond what is now conventional to find new ways engineers can apply their skills and knowledge. Particularly to macro-problems like diversity and curriculum change.
We are currently in the initial stages of planning events for National Engineering Month that will encourage conversation and are looking for people to assist us in this process.

Ryerson TOgether is a campus wide charitable initiative that aims to create awareness on the issue of homelessness in the GTA while raising funds for current services provided to homeless individuals.If you’re passionate about learning more about the issue, or to donate, please follow EWB on social media or join our Slack channel.
We are going to have a month long campaign in the winter semester that includes a case competition, launch event and charity gala. It also involves an online fundraising platform where you can donate as individuals or form a team to sign up for a friendly fundraising contest. We have more exciting events and activities coming up, so stay tuned.
