We are at a critical point in humanity’s journey. Numerous challenges present themselves, most notably, the rising threat of climate change that looms on the horizon, threatening the continuation of humanity and other species across the globe, and jeopardizing the preservation of coastal cities. Climate change is merely the symptom, however, not the cause, and if we are to surpass this monumental challenge, we must trace back to the factors that led us down this path.
Technological advancement has always been humanity’s forte, it has aided us throughout historical and modern times alike. We have focused so narrowly on technological advancement, however, that we turned a blind eye to the rising cost of an unsustainable approach. Additionally, our reliance on fossil fuels and non-renewable sources of energy to power our cities further contributes to the emission of greenhouse gases and the monumental challenge of climate change, which threatens to melt polar ice glaciers, and devastate coastal cities globally.
These consequences bring forth a dire need to allocate renewable, efficient, and affordable forms of energy, promote sustainable, healthy, and diverse ecosystems, and support enabling technologies that can offer promising solutions. An overhaul is required to our approach towards cities, a sustainable design will ensure the continuation and well-being of cities’ inhabitants, and humans around the world. A green approach towards urbanism that facilitates accessible public transport, and prioritizes energy, water & food security for its inhabitants, and regenerates compact fabric areas. An innovative approach towards materials that emphasizes sustainable construction, and a durable, eco-friendly design that ensures the resiliency of cities and the constructions within them.
Addressing these pressing challenges, and looking towards future sustainability, Al Galala university announces the first “Advances in Energy Research, Materials Science & Built Environment” conference, through which, discourse across multiple disciplines such as architectural development, green urbanism, modern construction management practices, and material efficacy in climate change mitigation, will investigate research on sustainability and development. Implementing these techniques will lead to achieving efficient, renewable, affordable, and inclusive green growth to accomplish the now urgent developmental needs of countries, and bring about a level of prosperity, and a better managed and robust environment.
With much theoretical and empirical knowledge to draw on in recent years, this conference aims to stimulate a discussion, in the form of submitted contributions and delivered presentations, surrounding the following main topics: (1) Climate Change: Challenges, Risks, and Solutions, (2) Green Urbanism’s Role in Resilient Communities and Environmental Efficiency, (3) Opportunities and Challenges in Coastal Areas, (4) Evolving Architecture and Rethinking City's Image and Preservation, (5) Materials for Renewable and Sustainable Energy, (6) The Role of Advanced Technologies in Sustainable Architecture, (7) Practical Applications
The conference does not only aim to provide descriptions, proposals, and recommendations of innovations, and theoretical foundations, but also offers a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in materials for efficient and sustainable energy applications in buildings, neighborhoods, cities, and coastal zones.
It will also provide an opportunity for exploration where not only new technologies in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry are highlighted, but also a guide to practical application is made available. It offers a comprehensive approach covering fundamentals, technologies, and applications through real-world examples.
The Advances in Energy Research, Materials Science & Built Environment (EMBE) conference hosted in Al Galala university, Egypt, aims to discuss topics pertaining to urban planning, sustainable architectural design, climate change mitigation techniques, and evolutionary design. The world around us is continuously evolving, largely due to technological advancements in fields such as architectural development, engineering, and computational technology. EMBE will host various knowledgeable keynote speakers and researchers that will deliberate on topics such as the incorporation of technology in sustainable urban planning, green urbanism, preservation of coastal areas, novel innovations in renewable materials, and responsive architecture. The conference envelops a multitude of scientific aspects of knowledge, that will lead humanity to a sustainable, greener future.
Statement of Purpose
It is incredibly apparent, especially as of late, that human activity directly influences environmental change. Continual technological development has undoubtedly ushered humanity toward an idyllic, prosperous life, however, human industriousness and activity has proportionally increased as a result. A comprehensive look into various human activities aboard planet Earth is direly needed, if we are to secure a safe and stable future for future generations. EMBE aims to dissect human activity on multiple facets, addressing key issues that demand attention and improvement. The conference additionally promotes sustainable developments techniques across various fields such as architecture, engineering, and urban planning, envisioning a brighter, greener, sustainable future for humanity.

Preserving Marine Habitats & Aquatic Lifeforms
Competition: Design a Marine Museum that Showcases Sustainability in Coastal Areas and Marine Environments
Planet Earth was famously dubbed the “Pale Blue Dot” by the beloved astronomer, and science communicator Carl Sagan. The term was derived from the fact that 71% of the planet is covered in water, comprising the majority of Earth’s topology. The lifeforms that inhabit Earth’s water bodies are magnificently diverse and have inhabited the planet long before land lifeforms even existed. Current irresponsible manufacturing processes however are endangering much of the marine life forms that inhabit the planet’s oceans, seas, and rivers. Marine and aquatic museums aim to partake in solving this issue by ensuring optimal living conditions for marine animals, while engaging the public in experiencing marine life firsthand, cultivating a global appreciation for aquatic conservation efforts.
As a part of the “Advances in Energy Research, Material, Science & Built Environment” conference, Al Galala University and IEREK present a Marine Museum competition, where architects and designers can submit their works in creating a Marine Museum that utilizes modern sustainable practices in architecture and development.
Competitors are encouraged to design a Marine Museum that showcases aquatic lifeforms and their brilliance while utilizing sustainable development techniques in construction.
The museum can showcase marine transportation and technology as well, including ships, navigation technologies, and deep-sea diving methods.
The competition will take place at Al-Galala University, which is near the coast of the Red Sea, home to a multitude of marine lifeforms, and seafarers.
Competitors must showcase a comprehensive design strategy for the marine museum, using practical examples and spaces near the Red Sea. Competitors will put forth their designs before an experienced jury, that will judge the design based on sustainability, practicality, space, and cost of construction.
To register, please visit the Competition Page here.
