Presentation to Engineers Without Borders

Presentation by Michel de Spot, P.Eng. at the Engineers Without Border Conference UBC March 13, 2004. If sustainability principles will guide us to a secure future, then nowhere do these principles need more urgent application than within the field of engineering. What do these principles mean in practice? What knowledge, skills, and actions are required by engineers to shift sustainability theory to practical application? What are the current initiatives and best practices locally and globally? These questions have been the focus of Sustainability Now for the past four years. The presentation summarizes the findings of this leading edge initiative and what challenges and opportunities expect future graduates who want to incorporate sustainability in their future career.
