The world is changing at an unprecedented pace, driven by such global trends as population growth, shifting demographics, climate change and differential resource depletion. The built environment needs to change as well, in order to mitigate and adapt to these changes.
It is impossible to predict and prepare for 'a single future'. But it is possible to address many of the main forcing drivers of the future in a manner that recognises the demands of sustainability, resilience and a positive constructed legacy for future generations.
Civil engineers, by the very nature of what they do, construct the physical legacy of future generations.
This lecture, hosted by ICE will discuss the current work and future responsibilities of its membership in ensuring the future resilience of the built environment.
The lecture will summarise the main global drivers of change; explore alternative ways of understanding the far future and civil engineers' roles in supporting the needs of future generations; discuss current ICE (and some particular ICE Members') relevant activities; as well as considering ICE's overall role and responsibilities in this area.
