Humanity is currently dealing with many environmental problems. They are exacerbated by the sprawl of cities, which is accompanied by the growth of urban population and an increase of elderly people, as well as land use changes. For example, these problems relate to (i) causes and consequences of climate change including global warming and embedded severe heat waves, (ii) urban sprawl, as well as (iii) air and water pollution. They affect organisms such as humans, plants and animals as well as materials and socio-economic sectors. Earth and environmental scientists and engineers are interested in methods and data, which enable impact-related comparative analyses of processes and resulting phenomena that are typical of past and future effects of human environmental activities. They aim at the development and implementation of solutions to a variety of current environmental issues.
In the "Earth Science & Environmental Engineering" sessions at EKC 2019, delegates from Europe and Korea will discuss the main issues, core trends and collaboration opportunities in the field of earth science and the environment with experts and key persons from diverse sectors including industry, governments, local authorities, research associations and organizations, as well as academia.
The following specific sessions are focused on "Earth Science & Environmental Engineering" at EKC 2019:
1) Adaptation to climate change in cities
2) Current issues of urban air quality
3) Current issues of urban water
4) Waste treatment and management
5) Circular economy and sustainability
6) Current environment-related topics on atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere
7) Poster presentation
Through these events, the "Earth Science & Environmental Engineering" group offers delegates a valuable opportunity to create a new network between Europe and Korea.

DR. LEE, Hyunjung (이현정)
City of Stuttgart, Office for Environmental Protection
Dr. Lee received her doctoral degree at the Faculty of Environment and Natural Resources, Albert-Ludwigs-University of Freiburg, Germany, in 2015. Her dissertation is titled "Increasing heat waves require human-biometeorological analyses on the planning-related potential to mitigate human heat stress within urban districts". Since August 2016, Dr. Lee is working at the Department of Urban Climatology, Office of Environmental Protection, City of Stuttgart (Southwest Germany).
Dr. Lee is mainly concerned with current issues of planning-related urban climatology and adaptation strategies within cities to regional climate change as well as the evolution and evaluation of the local urban air quality situation. Related to urban climate, these issues refer to (i) the analysis of the characteristics of heat waves within cities, (ii) fundamentals, determination and application of human-related indices for the assessment of the thermal component of the urban climate, (iii) simulation-based analyses on urban climate effects of urban land use planning including the adaptation to the consequences of regional climate change for the urban population, (iv) simulation-based analyses for the planning-related potential, particularly of urban greening but also of street and building design, to reduce local human heat stress within urban quarters.
In order to accomplish the objectives of her work, Dr. Lee applies different efficient tools such as the micrometeorological simulation model ENVI-met. She is presenting and discussing results of her work in administration meetings as well as on national and international conferences. In addition, she is publishing main results of her work in international peer-reviewed journals.
As there is greater pressure for sustainable development, the requirements from the built environment are becoming more demanding. There is broad agreement that densely populated urban areas should be more sustainable rural areas. However, whilst over half the planet’s population lives in cities, they account for more than 75% of the consumption of non-renewable resources, causing climate change.
Built Environment group will take a new perspective on sustainable built environment and strategical approaches responding to climate change. The sessions aim to bring together built environment professionals, climate and energy researchers, policy experts and government officials to discuss recent research and works. The sessions of the Built Environment will allow delegate to increase their knowledge and skills related to sustainable development, building design and the performance of buildings and materials.
