It is easy to think of the 19th century as the halcyon days of civil engineering, but I put it to you today that tomorrow is the time for an engineering renaissance. A time to build and rebuild our infrastructure in a burgeoning world, in the face of the complexities of climate change, in the face of a globalised economy and the fallout from the collapse of the financial systems upon which it was built - and in a world where more than half of the world's population have no access to the infrastructure platform upon which civilisation and its survival depends. Yes, Now is the Time.
