Dr Mike Cook was named the 2020 Gold Medallist in recognition of his infectious enthusiasm and curiosity for structural engineering, and his passion and leadership in response to the challenges of climate change.
During 2019 he was instrumental in galvanising UK built environment engineering companies and institutions into declaring a climate emergency. Mike’s address looks at what the climate emergency means for structural engineers. Believing that structural engineers have never been more crucial to the planet, he explores how we can, and will, play a vital part in redrafting the way the next 50 years will unfold.
