CASLE seeks youth mentorship in surveying
Ajanlekoko said through such initiative, commitment to the advancement of the surveying profession in the commonwealth and enhancing the skills of surveyors in the management of built environments for the common good would be promoted.
He stated this during the 50th anniversary of CASLE with the theme, “The future of surveying: Learning from the Past” in London.
Ajanlekoko told the practitioners that the time has come to encourage the youths by creating space for them in the post 50 years existence of the profession.
According to him, there was the need to redefine and re-evaluate the profession, as work is rapidly changing with new challenges and technological development fast changing the narratives.
He also stressed the importance of fostering appropriate standards of education for surveying and land economy and the establishment of appropriate facilities for education and training.
“Practitioners must facilitate the transfer of technology within the Commonwealth, assist in the constant update of knowledge through the programmes of continuing professional development and encourage dialogue between member societies and national government,” he said.
The Commonwealth Association of Surveying and Land Economy was ratified by Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ General Council and inaugurated on September 1969 and now has over 40 societies in 50 countries.
