This April, Geosynthetica is promoting 30 Days of Earth Day (#30DaysEarthDay). Each day we will publish stories on the intersections between geosynthetics and environmental protection, sustainable development, climate change, and green engineering innovations. We begin by re-emphasizing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are helping nations prioritize and structure programs around the world.
Of note, these Sustainable Development Goals are influencing how even private practice entities, such as engineering houses, focus and present their work.
Geotechnical engineers already have a lot to offer towards achieving the infrastructure-related SDGs, both technically and economically. Geosynthetics are one of their major tools.
