Fueled by the collective vision to create a positive impact on a larger scale, the Charles Rudd Distinguished Lectures series is embarking on a global journey to unite international experts and audiences from around the world under one global platform. Evolving into the new era of international collaboration and knowledge exchange, the Charles Rudd Distinguished Global Lectures (CRDGL) aim to highlight the impact and importance of sharing innovative solutions and foster collaborative efforts to address challenges faced on a global scale.

Focused on ‘Sustainable Development Goals: Engineering as an Enabler’ and addressing four key areas: Sustainable Living, Green Economy, Energy Reset, and Resilient Future, the Lecture will highlight the critical role that engineering plays in advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through a wide range of activities and initiatives outlined in the Singapore Green Plan 2030. The multidisciplinary and multi-stakeholder approach of engineering, along with its problem-solving capabilities and commitment to innovation, makes it a crucial enabler in the global pursuit of sustainable development and the achievement of the SDGs.
