Arup is once again supporting the I Wish conference in Ireland, inspiring students – tomorrow’s leaders and changemakers – to consider how they could use STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) to make a positive impact on the future of our planet.
Through a mixture of talks, panel discussions and engagement with the students at the Arup stand, we will encourage the girls to explore careers in STEM. 7,000 students will attend this year’s event in Cork on 30-31 January and in Dublin on 3-4 February.
Arup experts have looked ahead and developed four potential scenarios that describe what the world might look like in 2050. These futures hinge on whether we prioritise social and economic development over environmental health, or vice versa. At I Wish, we will show the students that they will be instrumental in addressing the challenges of future infrastructure, designing sustainable cities and tackling the climate emergency.
