Overview

The challenges facing society and, consequently civil engineering, are well documented, including climate change, reducing carbon and the impact of population growth.

During this event, we will be exploring these challenges through a specific focus on water, transport and place-making.

We will consider whether our policies are adequate, and what government activity might be required to support and accelerate improvements across the industry to deliver against the ambitious net zero targets.

The event, hosted by Nushma Juwaheer North West regional chair, will start with a buffet lunch and networking.

There will then be discussion with our key industry speakers, and the opportunity for questions.
