Descrição do evento retirada do site:
"The Engineering, Social Justice, and Peace (ESJP) network are delighted to announce their Sixth Annual International Conference, to be co-hosted with the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (The RSA) in London from August 4th to 6th 2010 in collaboration with the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre and Engineers Against Poverty.
Abstracts for presentations are welcome which:
1. Critique of existing or past practices and presentation of just alternatives especially in relation to the engagement of engineers with the communities, which they serve.
2. Critique of or alternative forms of equitable engineering organization and management.
3. Examples of pedagogies, curriculum or community service learning which promote socially just engineering practice.
We also welcome newcomers and students who are interested and have not yet begun to work in this area. Introductory sessions will be designed with this group in mind.
The international interdisciplinary ESJP network formed in 2004 and has grown in its passion and mission to create a knowledge base, support network, scholarship, and education to promote the education of engineers who promote social justice and peace. The first five conferences have been held in North America and we are particularly pleased that this meeting will be the first in Europe where we hope to grow our network.
The RSA through their ‘Design and Society’ program, whose aims are very similar to our own, are excited to work with us and we are developing a two day meeting which will include papers, interactive discussions, creative workshops and the chance to network with RSA Fellows in an evening reception with an invited speaker.
When: From noon August 4th 2010 to 1pm August 6th 2010.
Where: The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (The RSA) at 8 John Adam Street, London, which is close to Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and next to the Thames. The closest tube stations are Charing Cross and Embankment.
