Working on the UN sustainable development goals needs engineers to use their systems-thinking expertise. By providing students with a methodology to assess the sustainability of technological developments and reliable data on materials, processes, society, economics, legislation, and energy, CES EduPack supports this systematic approach.
Join this webinar for inspiration on giving students a more holistic, world-view of their design decisions; understanding trade-offs, and assessing the environmental impacts of products over their life cycles.
What you will learn
- Learn about the tools available to support sustainable decision making around materials and process choice, and product design
- Hear how students can have data about a wide range of materials, processes, energy systems, regulations and societies at their fingertips
- Explore how the established sustainable development assessment methodology and active learning resources can be used with students.
Who should take part?
- Anyone teaching sustainable development in engineering, science, or design—find out how CES EduPack could support your teaching.
