The Egyptian Society of Geosynthetics (IGSE) organized a September 17, 2020 webinar on “Sustainable solutions using geosynthetics in soil reinforcement.” This marked the first IGSE webinar! Renowned geosynthetics practitioner Prof. Ennio Marques Palmeira of the University of Brasilia presented. The webinar was a nice success, with 45 professors, engineers, graduate, and undergraduate students taking part. The attendees were from Egypt, Brazil, and India.

Prof. Palmeira shared with the IGSE attendees the results of his leading research in the field of soil reinforcement and his thoughts on providing sustainable solutions using geosynthetics in soil reinforcement in multiple civil engineering applications. Participants were given time to engage Prof. Palmeira directly with questions, which helped expand upon the education.
Dr. Mohamed Salah Morsy (Assistant Professor of Geotechnical Engineering, Ain Shams University, Cairo) served as moderator.
