Beyond Green: The Cutting Edge of Sustainable Engineering

June 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us and celebrate International Women in Engineering Day in our event Beyond Green: The Cutting Edge of Sustainable Engineering which brings together some of Australia’s experts and emerging leaders in sustainability engineering!

The headlines scream about the ever-growing threats to our planet: rising sea levels, extreme weather events, increased waste and dwindling resources. These aren’t distant worries – they’re the reality we face today. But amidst these challenges lies a beacon of hope – Sustainable Engineering. This rapidly evolving field is at the forefront of developing innovative solutions to combat a range of issues, including:

  • Climate change
  • Depletion of natural resources like water
  • Pollution of air, water, and soil
  • Loss of biodiversity and ecosystem degradation
  • Waste generation and inefficient resource use
  • The transition to renewable energy
  • And many more!

With the world experiencing a period of significant transformation as we develop new technologies to tackle complex issues like these, Sustainable Engineering is an exciting STEM field that needs innovative thinkers and change-makers to help enhance our world.

Join us as we celebrate International Women in Engineering Day with our free webinar titled “Beyond Green: The Cutting Edge of Sustainable Engineering” which brings together some of Australia’s experts and emerging leaders in sustainability engineering, including ATSE Fellow and Distinguished Professor Vivian Tam, Director of the Centre for Infrastructure Engineering at Western Sydney University, to explore how women are enhancing our World with engineering!

This webinar is the latest in our 2024 Shape Your Future series, an educational initiative from the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE), which brings experts in science, technology and engineering into Australian classrooms for a virtual chat with students on the things that matter to them.
