Workshops and seminars
Our workshops and seminars aim to broaden our member's perspectives on ethical and environmental issues. We believe that all of us should reflect around the impact our actions can have on societies, environment and people’s lives. We take both a local and global perspective on how we as engineers or scientists can have an impact on our respective fields of competence. At the same time, we want to inspire our members and others to take actions for a sustainable future. We do this through workshops, seminars, lectures, debates and exhibitions.
