ENGINEERING DAY

“Climate change is probably the greatest challenge that mankind has faced in recent times. It is already having a negative impact on the lives of people all around the world. A failure to act urgently will mean a reverse in development gains for the poorest and most vulnerable people in society, an erosion of biodiversity, increasing difficulties in providing food and shelter, as well as the potential loss of entire countries due to the impacts of climate change. It is truly an issue that affects everybody, everywhere. In November of this year the UK will host a major conference in the hope that through coordinated international action disaster can be averted. Engineering can offer many if not most of the solutions that can mitigate and even reverse the effects of Climate Change. During four afternoon sessions for the Wirral Arts Festival we will examine a range of technologies that can help in the battle against Climate Change.  In the evening we will have a lecture covering the topic from its causes and effects through to the solutions that Engineering has to offer”.
