Almost three-quarters (74%) of the Irish public surveyed for our Engineering 2020 report said they believe that engineers have an ethical obligation to tackle climate change and biodiversity loss.
Our conference will highlight how engineers are leading the fight against climate change.
The event will aim to mobilise, educate and empower engineers across all sectors to be drivers of climate action in their own business, network and communities.
In addition to hearing key note addresses, delegates will have a choice of four breakout sessions throughout the day covering:
1. Energy and Sustainable Practices
2. Clean Water and Flood Risk Management
3. Sustainability and Innovation in Manufacturing
4, Liveable Communities
