The seminar is related to Geotechnical Engineering. Sustainability is undoubtedly the biggest challenge facing engineering in the 21st century. Natural resources are fast depleting, traditional energy production methods are becoming too expensive. Geotechnical engineers need to demonstrate their capacity to make geotechnical practice sustainable and their ability to deliver developments which satisfy all three elements of sustainability: environmental conservation, social betterment and economic improvement. The seminar create a community of individuals who can drive innovations in the field of Geotechnical Engineering and meet the challenging requirements in the field analysis.
