We are excited to host the 19th annual American Ecological Engineering Society Meeting in Asheville, North Carolina. Located in North Carolina’s scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville is known for its vibrant art scene, adventurous spirit, and more breweries per capita than anywhere else in the U.S. This year’s meeting’s theme is “Leading the Pack: Enabling Future Generations to Solve our Planet’s Grand Challenges”. With this meeting, we hope to better contextualize the realm of Ecological Engineering while looking to the grand challenges that lie before us and engaging the next generation to continue to evolve with the emerging field of Ecological Engineering. The interplay between students, industry professionals, and academia will be a key element of the meeting. We are encouraging industry professionals to attend the meeting as industry mentors and provide insights to entering the industry.
The American Ecological Engineering Society’s mission is to promote the development of sustainable ecosystems that integrate human society with its natural environment for the benefit of both by fostering education and outreach, extending professional development and associations, raising public awareness, and encouraging original research.
