Following COP 21, climate change will become a more noticeable discussion on the global radar. Part of the Paris Agreement (to be ratified as of Dec 14, 2015) involves support from developed countries to developing countries to tackle the problems of climate change. But what might this look like on a local scale as a consultant? Dillon Consulting will present a climate change case study showcasing some of our work on climate change and facilitate a discussion on how we as engineers can show leadership through our work. Attendees will take part in an interactive stakeholder engagement session with the intent of exploring the role and responsibility of engineers in both technical and social contexts.
