Abstract

The 2010 CIB World Congress is focused on “Building a Better World”. The construction and built
environment sectors are already hugely important to achieving a world in which people are
properly housed, in which buildings and transport systems support the efficient operation of our
economies, and in which people are happy and healthy. But we can do better. Connecting and
channelling the full capacities of the construction and built environment industries to meet the
needs of the human race, head on, will transform the world, for us and for future generations.
The World Congress of the CIB is held every three years and is an opportunity for the whole CIB
community to gather and exchange views across the usual disciplinary boundaries. An
unprecedented majority of the CIB working commissions and task groups are represented at this
2010 Congress and we have worked to facilitate interaction with a rich mix of: specialist streams,
opportunities for informal networking and a series of challenging keynotes and, in response, multidisciplinary
workshops.
