Engineers Australia and the World Federation of Engineering Organizations are holding their next convention in Melbourne 20-22 November 2019. Call for abstracts closes 18 January 2019. The overarching theme is Engineering a Sustainable World: The Next 100 Years. The focus will be on engineering innovation, and how this can have a positive impact on our lives by creating sustainable engineering solutions. Sustainability is used in the broadest sense including ethics and social responsibility.
The three day program will feature six streams, with each aligning to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Engineers Australia is celebrating its Centenary in 2019, and this convention will highlight Australian engineering on a global scale and explore the distinctive and sustaining mindset of our profession; the notion that ‘anything is possible’. This also calls for a universal design approach to their solutions and social responsibility.
