The public forum event forms part of the wider program for the World Engineers Convention (WEC) 2019. Hosted every four years in a different location around the world, WEC is a chance for some of the top minds in engineering to meet in one place.

The program focuses on sustainable cities and climate change, innovation and disruption, and leadership and governance, while also addressing the need for a more diverse profession and the capabilities that are required for the engineers of our future.

Tickets for the World Engineers Convention are still available, see more at www.wec2019.org.au.
