This lecture explores how structural engineers can become regenerative practitioners… and why they must.

This fast-paced and action-packed lecture on the subject of regenerative design discusses how structural engineers can become regenerative practitioners with urgency and hope for a better future. The lecture encourages and challenges each and every one of us to take part as we move from our current degenerative design approaches, increasing atmospheric CO2 and reducing biodiversity, into a regenerative approach and presents regenerative design case studies.

The speakers of this lecture are the authors of the recent publication The regenerative structural engineer. The book is a creative call for radical change; encouraging engineers, and anyone else involved in the built environment, to think and design differently — to do more good. The lecture picks up on these themes and gives insights on the publication.
