The International Symposium on Sustainable Geosynthetics and Green Technology for Climate Change (SGCC) was held at the Centara Grand Hotel Ladprao in Bangkok, Thailand June 20–21.

This event also served as an honorary retirement symposium for Prof. Dennes T. Bergado—the SGCC organizing chairman, professor of geotechnical and earth resources engineering at the School of Engineering and Technology of the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), president of Thailand chapter of the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS-Thailand), director of Asian Center for Soil Improvement and Geosynthetics (ACSIG), and secretary general of the Southeast Asian Geotechnical Society (SEAGS).

The symposium was hosted by ACSIG and IGS-Thailand and co-organized by Suranaree University of Technology (SUT) and SEAGS under the auspices of the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS).

The symposium covered topics on geotechnical and geosynthetics engineering for mitigations, applications, and adaptations to changing environments due to climate change and global warming.

The two-day event was attended by more than 130 guests, speakers, session chairs, sponsors, and exhibitors from Asia, Europe, Australia, Middle East, and North America.
