Organiser(s): Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)
Name of Event: ICE President's Visit to Hong Kong 2021 – Meet the President, online
Date & Time: Wednesday, September 29th 2021 6:00 – 7:00 pm (HKT)
Join ICE for a virtual dialogue session with Rachel Skinner, who called on the importance of the Net Zero Carbon and the need for the civil engineers to act to help in reducing the carbon emissions and therefore address climate change. It's a time of challenge and change across civil engineering. New technologies and construction methods are changing the way infrastructure is designed, built and maintained. Economic shocks from Covid-19 have placed pressure on the construction sector, and challenges from climate change to inclusivity have not gone away. This session gives ICE Hong Kong members a chance to ask the ICE President her views on what's in store for the future, how ICE can help meet industry challenges, and how can civil engineers influence behaviour to reduce the carbon emissions associated with infrastructure?
