Infrastructure Innovation & Adaptation for a Sustainable & Resilient World

As our world expands through innovation, technology, and in population, civil engineers have a renewed call to action: Ensure that the built environment is safe, dynamically resilient, sustainable, future-ready, and adaptive to changing climate conditions. Join conversations on the most pressing issues in infrastructure and BE INSPIRED!

Thank you for joining us!

Future-ready infrastructure involves nature-based design and technological advancements in materials, energy use, and system-to-system communication and adaptive planning and management capabilities that respond to the risks from increasingly interconnected infrastructure. Understanding and adapting to risks such as changes in the earth’s temperature, increasing frequency of natural hazards, and the impact of sea level rise drive the need for civil engineers to design and build equitable, smart, hazard-resilient, people-centric engineering projects.

As the United Nations and governments across the globe are implementing requirements and regulations for public and private entities to disclose carbon impacts, civil engineers will be ready to respond, helping to mitigate carbon emissions, and respond to the demand for resilient infrastructure and community designs.

ASCE INSPIRE 2023 attendees hear from Pamela Williams, FEMA


Who Attended?

Infrastructure owners, practitioners, federal, state, and local agency representatives, and university professors and students interested in the latest research, case studies, and best practices to plan, design, and deliver more resilient and sustainable infrastructure systems to help our communities adapt to climate and energy needs.

ASCE INSPIRE 2023 offered an opportunity to connect with, share knowledge, and learn from experts actively bringing the future to life. Plenary speakers, technical sessions, local tours of engineering projects, poster sessions, exhibitors, and the live jazz band had attendees nothing short of INSPIRED.
