Learn how structural engineers can raise the level of ambition and commitment to the climate emergency in the coming year.

Two years have passed since the launch of the UK Structural Engineers Climate and Biodiversity Emergency Declaration. In that time the evidence of global warming and its consequences has become far more visible to us all. 

This forum was an opportunity for representatives of the 220+ organisations signed up to the declaration to come together to review the changes IStructE and industry have taken, compare notes on barriers to further progress and discuss what levels of personal and collective ambition we want to target for the coming year.

Reasons to watch

  • Find out about the latest guidance the IStructE has developed for guidance for change and reviews of professional membership and project awards requirements
  • Listen to discussions on the current situation for engineering firms and analyse the wider picture 
  • Hear debates and agree upon realistic targets that can be achieved for the upcoming year

Speakers

Ed Clark, Mike Cook, Will Arnold, Shalini Jagnarine Azan, Natasha Watson, Ben Gholam, Alison Church, Megan Stringer and Niamh McCloskey.

Part 1 - Where are we now?

Part 2 - At the crest of the wave

Part 3 - Emergency action next steps
