Nadia El Gamel Evolving Engineering Lead
“We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” – David Brower
Why did you join Re(Construct)?
I joined ReConstruct because I believe in the urgency with which this generation has to adopt more sustainable practices both personally and professionally. As a future engineer, I believe a key tenet of my profession is to ensure the wellbeing of my community and planet earth as a whole; this is only achievable through dedication to campaigns like (Re)construct, which petition zealously to secure the safety of our future.
What are your goals individually and for the Re(Construct) team?
With my team, I aspire to effect an urgent change to the recycling practices of Calgary’s Civil Engineering industry by petitioning for stricter bylaws, which govern landfill diversions. While working on this goal, I hope to build a lasting, inspirational bond with my peers and become a wiser leader and a more mindful human being.
