MARCH 2023

I know the trend at this time of year is to look back and share ‘highlights’, however for Petrus it has been such a dynamic year full of momentum that I am firmly looking forward, and want to share what’s coming with you. Our fantastic network is behind the success of our projects and 2023 is packed with opportunities to get involved, from learning & sharing on embedding sustainability in the classroom, to new sustainability micro-credentials and a host of experiential online programmes for your students. With that in mind, please stay in touch.

2024 Industry Forum, Shenzhen, China

The 2024 GEDC Industry Forum took place at Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) in Shenzhen this January. Gathering over 100 industry and university representatives from 16 countries, the event focussed on developing socially conscious engineering innovators, experts and leaders and explored 4 key themes: Skills & Talent, Educational Transformation, Discover & Innovation and Societal Impact. It was preceded by an interactive sustainability & innovation student challenge and Asian Deans workshop where AI was a key focus. We are extremely grateful to the companies and organisations whose generous support enabled the 2024 event to take place.
