The overarching theme for WEC 2019 is Engineering a Sustainable World: The Next 100 Years. The focus will not only be on engineering innovation, but how this can have a positive impact on our lives by creating sustainable engineering solutions.

The Convention program will offer three full days of content featuring six themes aligning to the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/.
