I believe, as I stated then, that the world is changing at a scale and pace which challenges our ability to understand the implications of these changes, let alone adapt to them, before there are changes yet again.
Sharp headlines have underlined this for all of us throughout the year, reminding us that we, as individual professionals or collectively as an institution, cannot afford to stand still.
I am proud to say that the Institution is not standing still, as over the past year I have met those members and professional communities around the world who are passionate about seeing that our profession will continue to play a vital role in the future of tomorrow’s built environment.
Institution CEO Martin Powell provides an update on the development of the Institution and the changes that have taken place in the last 10 months.
Mike Cook, Chair of the IStructE Climate Emergency Task Group, introduces a new 'Climate emergency' section in The Structural Engineer .
This foreword briefly summarises the commitments that engineers have made in declaring a climate emergency and considers first steps to build action plans that will support these commitments.
