In this episode of The Actioneers, EWB’s Technology Development Lead, Mitch Horrocks chats with Engineers Australia‘s Chief Engineer, Jane McMaster.

Together, they explore Jane’s generalized approach for complex problem solving, dig into the relationship between sustainable development, a circular economy, the externalities of engineering work and EA’s code of conduct. And why, in relation to climate change, engineers need to use their training as complex problem solvers to lead an equitable transition to clean energy including for transport and manufacturing the sustainable built environment and a healthy planet.
