IFEES GEDC IUCEE Webinar: Towards a Global Body of Knowledge for Teaching Sustainability Engineering Team from Sustainable Futures Lab at the School of Engineering at Morgan State University
October 27, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+5.5
The World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) 2030 Plan actively demonstrates the commitment by WFEO, its members and partners, to advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals through engineering. This would imply the need for engineering professionals and students to become sustainability literate. But what does that mean? Should there be a common set of terms and concepts that is understood from the agricultural engineer to the transportation engineer? And if so, who would decide what that is? Indeed, the rulebooks for engineering the substance of life on this planet would seem to demand a transdisciplinary approach to establishing minimum guidelines as to what the 21st Century engineering professional is expected to know and apply. This webinar will bring five experts who are members of a working group being established under the auspices of the Sustainable Futures Lab at the School of Engineering at Morgan State University to begin a global conversation on the need for a global body of knowledge for teaching sustainability engineering across all engineering disciplines.
