Since 2020, every March 4 marks the World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development, proclaimed by UNESCO, a festivity that will be framed within the UN 2030 Agenda and whose purpose will be to present projects at the engineering and technology level that allow achieving the goals set within the Sustainable Development Plan proposed by the nations.

During this conference, engineers from around the world are invited to offer proposals that help achieve the 17 goals that improve the planet.

In other words, they can provide solutions in areas such as: food, water, energy, the environment, sustainable cities, resilience to natural disasters, improvements in economic growth and even encourage gender equality within their professional field.

The initiative was proposed by the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO). This date is an opportunity to celebrate the contribution of the world’s engineers for a better and more sustainable world.

The role of engineers in our modern world is key when thinking about the future of humanity. They are the ones who have the responsibility to develop not only new technologies, but also new methods that allow people to continue obtaining the necessary resources without putting the planet at risk.
