Environmental Geotechnology, Recycled Waste Materials and Sustainable Engineering (EGRWSE) is a recurring conference organized since 2018 at renowned research centers such as the UIC (USA), NlT at Jalandhar (India) and Dokuz Eylul University (Turkey).These conferences were highly successful events covering cutting-edge research in renvironmental geotechnics, sustainable engineering, use of recycled materials in infrastructure or presentation of modern technologies implemented for sustainable development in construction, renewable energy and environmental engineering. All engineering fields should incorporate sustainability into their practice for an improved quality of life. The necessity for environment-friendly technologies in the future will require the expertise of engineers. Therefore, the UNESCO Engineering Initiative (UEI) is working with partners to develop engineering curricula that incorporate sustainability as an overarching theme. EGRWSE-2024 will be the 5th edition of the global conference which will refer to the current problems of civilization related to climate change and will focus on sustainable engineering implementing the Sustainable Development Goals. The conference will also discuss research on the use of recycled materials in construction following the demands of a circular economy.
