Overview of the Webinar
The world is undergoing an unprecedented rapid demographic and technological change along with an unabated growth of the world’s population. Failure to act on climate change, resource scarcity and urbanization – in both emerging and developed countries – are other macro trends we face.
The engineer of the future is therefore of central importance. Engineers must not focus solely on technical tasks and feasibility, but must also take into account the needs and requirements of the individual, consider the social framework conditions, and include our cultural circumstances.
The Civil Vision 2030 is at the service of the sustainable and ecological development of our civil society and the associated necessary and rapid transformation to a decarbonized economy.
In particular, it includes a systemic vision for our built environment.
