“Sustainability as if it Mattered” ESD MPhil Students Arup Presentations

last modified Jul 03, 2015 09:54 AM

ESD MPhil students addressed an audience of over 100 people from Arup on Monday June 29th 2015. Their assignment had been to address a panel of senior directors from international consulting firm Arup in March making proposals as to how they might change their business to embrace sustainability on their large infrastructure projects. The Directors were impressed with their proposals and invited the students back to present to a larger Arup audience on Monday evening.  

Thank you to everyone who made such a success of the evening at Arup.
