About this event

By 2100, the global human population may reach 9.5 billion with 75% of these people located within urban settlements. Meeting the needs and demands will provide significant challenges to governments and society at large, and the engineering profession in particular. Four key areas in which population growth and expanding affluence will significantly challenge society are: food, water, urbanisation and energy. The Institution of Mechanical Engineers recognises the scale of these issues and that there is a need to begin implementing the early phases of routes to sustainable solutions. In his lecture, Dr Fox will discuss the IMechE’s recommendations for meeting these needs and demands.
