The world urgently needs to take action on climate change and engineers have a vital role to play in delivering clean water, sustainable energy and a connected world.
In October ICE will bring together a worldwide community of engineers to look at how we can create real change and plan how the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals can be met.
At the GEC you will collaborate with global engineers, national and international policy makers, asset owners and experts from across the built environment. Using the combined platforms of ICE and the World Federation of Engineering Organisations, it is an unmissable opportunity to learn from international peers, forge connections and contribute to a plan that tackles the big global challenges.
The GEC offers 5 full days of multi-streamed content. 2,000-plus engineers will take part in a practical programme designed to produce answers that can improve the lives of millions around the world.
Taking place at ICE in London, GEC is part of our ICE 200 bicentenary programme, the 50th anniversary of WFEO and the UK Government’s Year of Engineering.
