Engineers for a sustainable future
Over the past 150 years, engineering and technology have transformed the world in which we live, contributing to significantly longer life expectancy and enhanced quality of life for a large number of people. The global population is growing and becoming increasingly urban. The demand for mobility, private vehicles and energy is burgeoning. Emissions of greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide, are on the rise. For mobility to remain sustainable, solutions for mass urban and non-polluting transportation need to be found—this is a collective call to arms for engineers around the world.
The current situation presents challenges and opportunities for engineers. Working together closely, the engineering force can provide leadership by developing new concepts and convincing stakeholders/policymakers to support them. Technology alone is not enough. Engineers also need to determine how best to accelerate the pace of innovation and, in doing so, rapidly deliver
