Conference Theme
The world is changing. Global warming is a physical change (of climate), but also societies are changing. Sustainability is becoming a firm driver for decision makers, financiers and technological developments. Across the world, and across all generations, people become increasingly convinced that the exploitation of earth’s resources must be limited and become sustainable soon. A further change is that globalisation (growing international trade and global logistic chains) is reconsidered. And geopolitics has become an important factor yet again. The challenges, but also the prospects for the industry in the years and decades ahead, will be huge. During the CEDA Dredging Days 2024 conference, the manner in which the dredging industry acts, and reacts, on changes will be presented in a variety of sessions, with lots of room for interaction and discussion.
