Four years have passed since the launch of Engineers Declare. In that time, the evidence of global warming and its consequences have only intensified, and we must all ask ourselves if we are doing enough.
Some firms have taken bold steps to publicly declare their own targets and commitments. The Institution has continued to provide guidance for change in our practice and implemented its professional membership and project awards requirements.
Join this summit to hear case studies highlighting how to address the climate and biodiversity emergency through circular economy and reuse practices and the implementation of digital tools. The programme also includes an update on policy and standards and a panel discussion focused on best practices to use less concrete.

Everyone is welcome to join this summit, especially those who are thinking about making a commitment to taking positive steps in addressing the climate and biodiversity emergency.
This year’s Structural Engineers Declare Summit will be a hybrid event, with in-person attendance at IStructE HQ for declared firms and the public. Online attendance will also be possible for those around the world who would like to hear more about the UK structural engineering community.

A hybrid conference dedicated to best practice in the early stages of adaptive reuse projects through assessment, appraisal and design decisions
Gain on-demand access to all four webinars of the 2023 series, which explores some of the alternative solutions available to engineers striving to achieve net-zero targets.
This webinar examines best practices and methods to carry out cost-effective investigations and surveys of ageing concrete buildings built between 1950 and 1985.
This new guidance is an essential read for any built environment professional developing new (or reusing existing) structures today. Across four principal sections it explains why the adoption of circular economy principles is critical.
This webinar focuses on best practices in design and construction using new-generation and reused timber.
This webinar focuses on reusing waste materials, such as rammed earth and recycled bricks, in design and construction.
This webinar focuses on structural glass and fibre-polymer composites (FPC).
This lecture explores lean structural design, how to challenge a brief to reduce embodied carbon, and low-carbon structural innovation.
This highly practical, half-day, online workshop teaches the skills SME practice owners and directors need in order to plan the medium and long term growth of their SMEs.
This one-day, online course helps you improve the quality of your written reports and reduce the time you spend writing. It covers how to adapt your writing style for different documents and audiences. You will also learn some grammar best practice to help you write clearly and concisely.
This half-day, online course will equip self-employed engineers with an understanding of the commercial value of their Intellectual Property. The course contains practical advice on how you can protect your design copyright, business name, confidentiality, and inventions.
This course equips attendees with practical knowledge about structural design with bamboo stems (culms). The course considers aspects of concept design, detailed design and durability by design.
