Engineering Change: Consultation Report

December 2023

This report presents the key insights of a global consultation of young engineers and engineering managers undertaken between October and November 2023. Notably, the consultation revealed an overwhelmingly positive response from young engineers on the value that they place on sustainable development in their work, adding to their job satisfaction and sense of purpose.

Several calls to action have been identified for individuals and organisations to accelerate engineering change, including building capacity within the workforce, rapidly creating opportunities for upskilling, championing the business case for sustainable development practices, and driving advocacy and training.

Findings from this consultation will feed into the objectives for the #EngineeringChange campaign, an initiative by ICSI and the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) Young Engineers/Future Leaders Working Group on Climate Action (YE/FL SDG13).
