UBC Womens Faulty Club Presentation

Sustainability, Science and the Ways Technology Can Impact the World

Abstract

Sustainable science is concerned with creating technologies that will help our communities grow and thrive; science that can inform and empower us to take a “bottom-up” view of climate change to build sustainable innovative cities.

In this presentation, Dr Love-Ese Chile will speak about her pathway to becoming one of a growing group of Sustainable Scientists advocating for the use of green technologies within our communities. An important aspect of sustainable science is to explore the social and cultural practices at the core of sustainability issues; how did we arrive here and, what will support us getting to where we want to be? Using plastic, 3D printing and 5G technology as case studies, Dr. Chile will speak about how these innovations could help propel us towards a sustainable future.
