Engineering with Nature Atlas – Vol 2 – Call for contributions

Engineering project examples highlighted in the Engineering with Nature Atlas illustrated the diverse opportunities and growing community of organizations and practitioners that are contributing to Engineering With Nature (EWN) practice worldwide.

Due to the strong, positive global response to the first Atlas, the editorial team are now actively planning the development of Volume 2 of the Atlas, with 50 new projects illustrating practice around the world.

Vol 1 featured two New Zealand projects – successful foreshore restorations in Wellington and Auckland.  It would be great if more A&NZ projects could be profiled in Vol 2!

Nomination Criteria:

The project should relate to the following EWN key elements:
1. Using science and engineering to produce operational efficiencies.
2. Using natural processes to maximum benefit.
3. Increasing the value provided by the project to include social, environmental, and economic benefits.
4. Using collaborative processes to organize and focus interests, stakeholders, and partners.

If you are interested in submitting a project for consideration, then please go to the following link. You will be provided with a nomination form that offers specific instructions concerning the project information that is needed – one nomination form and associated pictures for each project.

This link to a completed form serves as an example for applicants to follow. Please apply before 31 December 2019. If additional time is required, please contact Michelle Bourne, details below.

The Atlas team will initially review the submissions to determine if the information provided is sufficient and complete. Final notification listing the projects selected to appear in Volume 2 will be made in March 2020.
