2019 Environmental Engineering and Science Resource Guidebook - Sign Up for Your Listing

The Academy invites you to sign up for a listing in the 2019 Environmental Engineering and Science Resource Guidebook. We are releasing the Guidebook in both electronic and print format to make this year's edition easier to use and easier to distribute to individuals and organizations looking to connect with environmental specialists. We are expanding the content that each listing receives – enabling web links in the e-version and providing more room to post information on your specialties in both versions. We expect to print and distribute the new publication more widely than we have in the past, with a special focus on outreach at the trade events and conferences we attend during the year. We are also planning an expanded role for the Guidebook in making federal, state, and local agencies aware of the capabilities of our members in helping deal with current environmental engineering needs.

Ask your organization's sales and marketing team to reserve its space by March 31, 2019. It provides great exposure for a small investment. For details, email JSOlmo@aaees.org. Click here to download the 2019 Reservation Form.

The National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine Final Book Now Available

Title: Environmental Engineering for the 21st Century: Addressing Grand Challenges

The National Academies of Sciences, Medicine, and Engineering study on Grand Challenges for Environmental Engineering in the 21st Century has been completed and a written report is now available. The report can be purchased in physical form or as a free download pdf document. Environmental challenges continue to multiply as the global population expands toward 10 billion people by 2050 and as demands for clean water, food, and energy rise, all in the context of global climate change.

The study brought together experts in a wide range of fields who, with input from the scientific community and the broader public, identified the foremost challenges that environmental engineers and scientists will be expected to address over the next several decades. The study also describes how practitioners in the field - with assistance from colleges and universities - will need to evolve to better address those challenges. The study's conclusions are a testament to the multidisciplinary, pragmatic, systems-oriented approach that characterizes environmental engineering. The report can be purchased in paperback format for $45.00.
