A series of poignant and inspiring talks and rapid Pecha-Kucha-style presentations from around continental Europe.

Key speakers Will Arnold (IStructE Head of Climate Action) and Sven Thelandersson (Renown Swedish Structural Engineer) will speak about Climate Action, Structural Safety and the importance of CPD.
 
Between these two very important talks, we will host a series of stories from a wide range of people around continental Europe. These should be fun and inspiring, delivered in Pecha-Kucha-style rapid three minute mini-presentations.
 
The event should be both poignant and inspiring, an opportunity to hear new stories and cross-pollinate.
