Mission and Vision
The American Ecological Engineering Society (AEES) shall promote the development of sustainable ecosystems that integrate human society with its natural environment for the benefit of both by fostering education and outreach, extending professional development and associations, raising public awareness, and encouraging original research. The vision of the Society is that AEES is the lead organization integrating ecological design principles in engineering education and practice.
"Ecological Engineering" was introducted by H.T. Odum in the 1960s, however, the field has developed significantly since then. A new society called the "American Ecological Engineering Society" (AEES) was first discussed at a workshop on ecological engineering in Columbus, Ohio in May 1999. Fifteen US universities were represented at that meeting. It was agreed at the workshop that ecological engineers throughout North America should pursue the idea of a U.S. society, particularly to begin the process of organizing academic programs and ultimately certification for this new field in North America.
The core values of the Society are as follows:
1. Integration of ecological principles and engineering practice;
2. Professional development through lifelong learning, career mentoring, and certification; 3. Advancement of our understanding of ecological engineering through research and practice; and,
4. Education of and outreach to future professionals, decisionmakers, and the public.
For any inquiries, questions or recommendations, please call or e-mail the current president listed on the officers page.
The societal listserv is an opportunity for active member to post questions, discussion topics, and other ecological engineering information to be disseminated among other members.
