Overview

Join us for the May ICE Sustainability Reading Club event, part of a series of virtual social events to discuss reports and articles relating to sustainability and climate change in the civil engineering sector, this month reading about making the built environment more sustainable and liveable for all!

The goal is to read an article ahead of the event and discuss it in a friendly group setting. We are hoping to cover the topic from a range of perspectives!

While there will be a brief summary of the reading material at the beginning of the meeting, we recommend that attendees read the chosen article ahead of the meeting to ensure they can participate properly.

This month’s reading is the Sustainable Living Places report, by the Royal Academy of Engineering, giving a systems perspective on planning, housing and infrastructure.

The report is available here: Sustainable Living Places, report

The purpose of the Reading Club is to encourage open conversation around sustainability in our industry, help to keep civil engineers up to date with relevant news and literature, and provide a friendly, informal networking opportunity for any that wish to attend.

While it is organised with early careers professionals in mind, the event is open to anyone that would like to join the conversation!

Committee members will be present to provide some prompts and questions to get the conversation going and moderate the conversation if need be.

For those of us with a long list of things-to-read that never seems to get shorter, this event is a great opportunity to make time for a bit of reading and a chat with a group of peers!
