Bringing together the worldwide engineering population to agree a united response to delivering the UN Sustainable Development Goals
In October 2018, the World Federation of Engineering Organisations and ICE will hold the first Global Engineering Congress, an ambitious effort to agree a worldwide response to deliver the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
The world urgently needs to take action on climate change, and engineers have a vital role to play delivering clean water, sustainable energy and a connected world.
The congress represents a unique gathering of the worldwide community, led by ICE, the World Federation of Engineering Organisations, American Society of Civil Engineers, Canadian Society of Civil Engineers and the European Council of Civil Engineers.
Offering five full days of multi-streamed content, 3,000 engineers will hear and discuss practical ways to deliver the goals and improve the lives of millions of people.
Taking place in London, the event falls within ICE's bicentenary year, the 50th anniversary of WFEO and UK Government's Year of Engineering. It is an unprecedented opportunity to bring the global community together and agree steps to creating a future proof world.
