Sustainability eBook Now In Spanish!

The IGS eBook on sustainability is now available in a Spanish language version (PDF).

The original eBook, called Preparing the ground for a brighter future, was launched to coincide with Earth Day 2020 in April. It is now available in French, Japanese and Turkish, with other translated versions in the pipeline.

Spanish chapter President Angel Leiro López said: “It is important to spread the word on the relevant issues featured in the eBook. I’m delighted our members and other Spanish speakers worldwide will now have access to it in their own language.”

Francisco Pizarro, President of the Chilean chapter, added: “This eBook represents an important effort from the IGS and its Spanish-speaking chapters to raise awareness about how geosynthetics have a relevant contribution to make to society.”

IGS Vice President Nathalie Touze, whose Giroud Lecture, Healing The World: A Geosynthetics Solution, formed the basis of the eBook, said: “The important issues discussed in the digital publication can now reach an even wider audience to help further the debate on how geosynthetics can make a real impact in creating a more sustainable future.”
