On behalf of Engineers Australia, we’re proud to introduce our inaugural Climate Smart Engineering conference on 16–17 November 2021.
With attendance online or in person at the Hilton in Sydney, this conference will enable engineers to explore the relevant risks and opportunities, to network and to hear first-hand from business, finance, government and engineering leaders.
Engineers will be pivotal in both mitigating and adapting to the challenges posed by climate change, and the associated expectations of investors, voters, employees and the wider community.
Climate Smart Engineering is being held the week after the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference – a globally recognised event which is being described by US Climate Envoy John Kerry as “the last best chance the world has” to act. We will use the international climate agenda as a springboard for our discussion.
Engineers across all disciplines need to understand both the “why” and the “how” of mitigating and adapting to climate change, as well as how to meaningfully measure, and report on, progress. This conference will provide a platform for learning, making new connections across disciplines and sectors, and for discussing ideas. There will be opportunities to share and explore case studies and practical examples of best practice.
With 100,000 members, Engineers Australia is the voice of the profession, and we hope you can join us in this crucial conversation.
Engineers Australia (EA) is the trusted voice of the profession. We are the global home for engineering professionals renowned as leaders in shaping a sustainable world.
With the Climate Smart Engineering (CSE) conference EA hopes to bring the business and finance sectors together with government to connect with engineering minds, ideas and opportunities and to showcase engineering solutions that have, are and will combat climate change.
CSE will also provide an opportunity for various and fragmented engineering solutions or engineering ideas developed in isolation which are submitted as abstracts, to be heard and considered by engineers in different industries, states, countries and jurisdictions.
CSE will demonstrate that engineering in partnership and in collaboration (as witnessed during COVID-19) can be responsive and effective against a common goal or a global target.
