The programme consisted of:

  • An update on ECCE work and affairs
  • A workshop to collaborate in ECCE's strategic plan
  • The 'Beyond Infrastructure' conference challenging the role of the traditional civil engineer in light of changing demands of infrastructure vis-a-vis net zero cities, decarbonisation and climate action. This conference will be open to all local professionals too.
  • A cultural guided tour of the Underground Water Cisterns at the Archbishop's palace and the Fortifications of Valletta
  • An accompanying person's programme visiting the old capital of Mdina and its cathedral, a walking tour of Rabat, the Mosta dome and San Anton Gardens in Attard.
  • A conference dinner to catch up with colleagues and friends.


Beyond Infrastructure Conference

Challenging the role of the traditional civil engineer in the design, maintenance, and repair of existing and new infrastructure. How can the civil engineer influence decisions early on in the planning and design process and be part of the big table discussion where leadership and innovation occurs, such that cities may be able to reach their net-zero targets and climate action programmes?

The Beyond Infrastructure Conference was an open conversation between professionals on how all stakeholders in cities need to move away from thinking about a particular project into thinking about how the purpose of the project will drive and respond to the right outcomes; be they social value, reduction in carbon, equality, diversity, and inclusion while addressing aging infrastructure and bring about innovative solutions.
