Sustainability and Climate Change at Structures Virtual 21
When it comes to climate change and sustainability the world has changed drastically in the past couple of decades. As structural engineers we are at the forefront of adaptation so climate change, carbon reduction, sustainability, and resiliency are being considered in our daily practice, in our education, and in our codes and standards. Join us, and your colleagues from all over the world, at Structures Virtual 2021, June 2-4, to learn about these topics.
The second day (June 3) of this unique virtual conference opens with a keynote presentation followed by two sessions discussing this. Even if you're busy June 3, or your time zone prohibits you from attending, still register because registrants can watch the sessions for 60 days post-conference!
Structural Engineering for a Changing Climate: The Floating City
Presenters David J. Odeh, Maria Garlock, Elizabeth English, and Bill Nechamen will discuss ASCE's newly launched "Future World Vision" and it's Floating City. Come away from this session with the ability to identify challenges that our profession faces to make living with water a reality, innovations to inspire others to think outside the box, and start building a community of professionals working on, or interested in, advancing studies on the Floating City and Amphibious Architecture.
The Structural Engineer's Toolbox to Decarbonize Construction: The Present and Future
Presenters Michael Gustafson and Don Davies will teach you the importance of reducing embodied carbon in our projects, real-world applications of existing design practices and tools available today, and what emerging design methods, materials, and tools will make embodied carbon design part of the future for the practice of structural engineering.
