On the occasion of UPADI's 70th Anniversary General Assembly Meetingheld in Asunción, Paraguay, WCCE and UPADI have signed a Partnership Agreement that will enforce both organizations' efforts to enhance its member organizations' contributions to the accomplishment of UN's Sustainable Development Goals. The signing ceremony took place in the premises of the Centro Paraguayo de Ingenieros in Asunción on July 25th. In order to follow-up this Partnership Agreement both organizations have granted each other Observer member status in the other organization.
UPADI has confirmed its participation to WCCE's 14th General Assembly with a delegation to be headed By its current President, María Teresa Pino.
The large influx of public to the Innovation Tunnel installed in Plaza Callao has exceeded the forecasts of the organizers. Over 30.000 people have visited this free exhibition that has shown pieces that represent the innovative capacity of Spanish civil engineering. To this data we must add the participation of citizens in other activities such as visits to Madrid infrastructure, workshops and educational and recreational activities for young people, as well as those attending the inauguration, which in total involve 33,100 people who have actively participated in this edition of Madrid’s Civil Engineering Week.
The dean of the College of Civil Engineers of Madrid, Lola Ortiz, has assured that “we celebrate the great interest that this sample of the innovative leadership of Spanish engineering in the world has generated and have brought to society a profession that improves the quality of our daily lives".
UN’s Sustainable Development Goals are ambitious, and its accomplishment relies deeply on engineering, especially on civil engineering. On other hand, it is clear that global action to accomplish such goals can only be enhanced by coordinated bottom-up contributions from the project level to local, national and regional action.
Due to this, Portuguese Ordem of Engenheiros (OEP) will bring engineers from around the world to Lisbon to share knowledge, challenges and projects in Lisbon Civil Engineering Summit 2019 (CES2019), which will be held at Portugal's LNEC- The National Civil Engineering Laboratory. This Civil Engineering Summit follows mid April Ljubljana's World Construction Forum and precedes Melbourne’s World Engineering Congress to be held in late November. Within its scope, four global and regional associations related to civil engineering will hold their respective General Assemblies.
