Join us for an evening of consultation and discussion facilitated by Mark Abbott and Lindsay Mitchell from the Engineering Change Lab.

Technology has a profound impact on people and the planet. In the context of Facebook scandals, poor drinking water quality in North American communities, and rapid advancements in digital technologies such as AI, the Engineering Change Lab is working with the engineering community and other key contributors to help ensure technology makes the world a better place.

We believe having a concept which encapsulates this aspiration for technology will help us call on those who create and influence technology to step further into a responsible leadership role, and are in the early stages of testing “technological stewardship” as that concept.

Come help us test and explore this concept, the role of engineers in society, and how we can start working together towards this better world -- including a focused effort soon to be launched in Alberta!
