Adapting to Global Disruption: Meeting the challenge with integrative, holistic, and sustainable engineering.
For years the WEEF & GEDC conferences have been invaluable forums where educators, students, engineers and industry representatives have gathered to prepare for a future of global disruption. The past two years have accelerated the global reality as the Covid-19 pandemic has firmly planted us in a state of global disruption. We are no longer preparing: we are here, in the midst of disruption, coming together to reflect on our contexts. The themes of the 2022 WEEF & GEDC conference, collocated with the AEEA 2022 conference, can be represented by these questions:
If we approach these challenges in an integrative (multidisciplinary, interinstitutional, cross-cultural, inclusive, diverse, trusting and ethical) manner, we will create holistic learning and engineering environments (that meet the cognitive, affective and systemic needs of society, students, academia and industry) which will create sustainable (safer, peaceful and cohesive planet) solutions for our future.
Join us in mapping out our Integrative, Holistic and Sustainable future together!
