  1. Global challenges Global solutions The profession’s response Greg Lewin, WCEC Chairman

  2. Key Challenges Energy Food & Nutrition Health & Wellbeing Water Chemical Engineering

  3. A new South Africa, every nine months... nine billion humans by 2040 The scale of the challenge we face

  4. The water challenge

  5. The health challenge

  6. The carbon challenge

  7. Meeting global needs

  8. Chemical engineering... The boundaryless profession

  9. ? A vision of the future

  10. Chemical engineering making the vision a reality

  11. Chemical engineering key to the future Engineering

  12. Getting from here to there

  13. Getting from here to there

  14. Future Life sustainability process safety health & wellbeing energy food & nutrition water education, training & research essential issues and concerns chemical engineering fundamentals: systems multidisciplinarity & collaboration the ‘bio’ dimension key challenges

  21. Chemical Engineering Matters Water

  22. Chemical Engineering Matters Water Waste water recycling Improved water conservation Hierarchy of treatment technologies Low energy desalination

  23. Future Life sustainability process safety health & wellbeing energy food & nutrition water education, training & research essential issues and concerns chemical engineering fundamentals: systems multidisciplinarity & collaboration the ‘bio’ dimension key challenges

  24. Delivering the vision

  25. Lack of societal understanding • Critical shortage of talent • Silo mentality Delivering the vision

  26. Lack of societal understanding • Critical shortage of talent • Silo mentality Delivering the vision by creating a boundaryless force

  27. If we don’t act?

  28. But if we do... Engage with others and contribute to the profession Chemical Engineering

  29. If we don’t act?

  30. Chemical engineering matters... Chemical Engineering The profession’s response Greg Lewin, WCEC Chairman
