Sustainable Transport for a Better World
Interactive Student Event
The topic for this session was “Sustainable Transport for a Better World”. This theme was chosen in line with World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development. The Transport industry is a major direct contributor to employment and national and global Gross Domestic Product and therefore has a major role to play in development. However, to ensure sustainable development, the impact of the industry on the environment needs to be reduced and access to safe and reliable transport needs to be increased.
