Sustainability and Resilience of the Geoenvironment in Facing a Changing Climate

The Geoenvironmental Congress aims to foster collaboration and information sharing among geoenvironmental professionals to address the challenges posed by a changing climate. Highlighting strategies for managing soil and groundwater scarcity and contamination, managing byproducts and waste in a sustainable way, while promoting sustainable geoenvironmental practices in the face of a rapidly changing climate.

Welcome to the official website for the Geoenvironmental Engineering Technical Committee's specialty conference on geoenvironmental engineering! This conference is organized every eight years to share the latest advancements in this field. Our previous events have been:

  • GeoChicago 2016: Sustainability, Energy, & the Geoenvironment
  • GeoCongress 2008: Geo-sustainability and Geohazard Mitigation
  • Geoenvironment 2000: Characterization, Containment, Remediation, and Performance in Environmental Geotechnics.

This year's conference focuses on the impact of climate change on the geoenvironment, as well as the impact of the geoenvironment on Earth's climate system. Our main theme is centered around identifying the challenges and solutions that arise from these impacts. We welcome all geoenvironmental professionals, researchers, practitioners, and students to attend and share their insights on this critical topic.
