The engineering, design and planning professions will play a significant part in moving society to a more sustainable way of life. Recognising this, the Engineering Sustainable Solution Program (ESSP) seeks to provide engineers and built environment professionals with a core understanding of sustainability issues and opportunities as they relate to their practice. The ESSP is designed to facilitate the effective incorporation of key pieces of information, or ‘critical literacies’, and the design calculations, or ‘design principles’, relating to sustainability into engineering curricula and capacity building.
The Critical Literacies program is intended to provide teachers, lecturers, trainers and self learners with a suite of material that has been well researched, peer reviewed and trialled to assist in the acceleration of the use of such material an alert to sustainability principles and activity in the engineering profession.
