ICEG will foster the dialogue between Geoenvironmental Engineering professionals and researchers envisioning sustainable infrastructure solutions for addressing global grand challenges

Message from the Chair

An interdisciplinary approach…

Interdisciplinary in nature, spanning across a versatile spectrum of fields from Geochemistry and Hydrology to Reservoir Engineering and Decision Analysis, pragmatic, and systems-oriented, Environmental Geotechnics has an immense potential to understand how the natural and anthropogenic environment intercouple, and how they threaten or benefit one another. Such understanding is key to providing safe, reliable, sustainable, and cost-efficient solutions to the dramatically shifting and growing risk landscape of our era. 

…to multiple challenges

Our civilization is sustaining the worst Environmental Crisis of all times, and the numbers are ruthless: even with strong climate action, the aftermaths of climate change are unavoidable, and the frequency of immense natural catastrophes, such as wildfires, heatwaves, droughts and flash floods will keep increasing.  Aggregating these disruptive events together, and focusing on the particular role, that the next generation of Geoenvironmental Engineers will play globally, we can identify seven grand challenges, which Environmental Geotechnics is uniquely positioned to tackle:

    1. Urbanization and Aging Infrastructure
    2. Energy Security
    3. Resource Scarcity and Preservation
    4. Climate Change and Natural Hazards
    5. Protecting Public Health
    6. The Next Frontier: Living in extreme environments
    7. Education & Post-truth Society
