This hybrid conference explored how educators can play a critical role in preparing graduate engineers for the shifting working landscape in response to the climate emergency.

As the climate emergency is changing the working landscape, engineers are required to adopt innovative and sustainable practices and educators are compelled to adapt their teaching and research.
 
This conference assessed the current industry expectations for graduate engineers and how educators can further support their students in sustainable concept design and decision-making. The conference featured case studies on how curricula can be broadened to better prepare tomorrow's engineers in retrofit and reuse, and in effectively challenging the brief through carbon calculations.
