Young Engineers Challenge: Air Quality

Young Engineers Challenge: Air Quality

This year New Civil Engineer is launching the Young Engineers Air Quality Challenge as an exciting new feature at our Future of Roads conference. 

Air pollution is the largest environmental health risk and threatens irreversible and devastating climate change. We are looking for graduates who can develop innovative and cost-effective strategies or solutions for the use of roads in cities, towns or the countryside which will improve air quality by 2025.    

Teams are challenged to choose three implementable and cost-effective strategies or solutions. Possible approaches might include emissions charging or encouraging lifestyle change e.g. active travel. Teams should seek transformative solutions and explain how they have considered the challenges, the opportunities and potential technological and other obstacles to implementation. Successful teams will then be given the opportunity to present their ideas at the Future of Roads conference on 4 July.

If your team has what it takes to solve the air quality challenge, please submit your entry by Friday 7 June.
