Description

Public lecture by Jo da Silva OBE, winner of The Institution of Structural Engineers’ 2017 Gold Medal.

Mary Robinson, MRIA and President of Ireland (1990-97) will be introducting the lecture.

Jo da Silva was awarded the Gold Medal to recognise the outstanding leadership she has provided as both a structural and humanitarian engineer, and for her distinguished and cross-sectoral work on urban resilience. Jo is an Arup Fellow. She established the International Development group in Arup, as a not for profit business, allowing the firm to make a greater contribution to humanity and development work. Among her many achievements, Jo co-ordinated the efforts of over 100 humanitarian agencies to provide transitional shelter in Sri Lanka following the Indian Ocean Tsunami in 2005, constructing 60,000 shelters in six months.
