The lecture is part of a series of five thought pieces running 2014 – 2018. Last year’s lecture “Getting into Shape” was delivered by Professor Paul Jowitt, Professor of Civil Engineering Systems at Heriot-Watt University and Past ICE President.

This year’s topic, “Lessons from a flooded city on building resilience” will be delivered by Professor Eelco H. Dykstra, ‎Executive Chairman, Daily Impact Emergency Management. Professor Dykstra will take the audience through a reality-fiction scenario of a flooded city based on his 25 years of international emergency management experience in Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia and North America, including his work on the strategy and methodology for the International Katrina Project (IKP).

Join Professor Dykstra, Professor Paul Jowitt and Sir John Armitt at One Great George Street and hear how civil engineers are building a better world.

The event will also be available to watch online if you are unable to join us in London.
