Several new initiatives have been inspired by the global discussions on climate change, while the virtual format gained record-breaking attendance. The engineering sector is ready to make the changes needed […]
Tapping into creative capabilities and thinking differently are critical for civil engineers to make a meaningful input to the climate crisis, according to The Resilience Shift CEO Seth Schultz, presenting his final lecture in the ICE’s Brunel Lecture series.
Panellists from Australia and New Zealand discussed collaboration, speaking out, and diversity during the final leg of the virtual Brunel lecture series.
On 1 September the ICE International Brunel Lecture Series moves its focus to South Asia. The lecture will be given by Resilience Shift CEO, Seth Schultz. He will be joined by a panel of experts from the region for discussion and questions in the second half of the session.
The latest leg of the 13th Brunel Lecture series discusses the urgent need to train and retain engineers, particularly to deal with the climate emergency.
The WFEO Climate Stories series is a collection of blogs written by WFEO committee members about climate change in six countries from around the world: Australian, Canada, China, France, Kenya and the UK. The blogs looked at how climate change is affecting each country, attitudes to climate change, what is being done to reduce carbon emissions, and the role engineers can play. Here Davide Stronati assesses what we can learn from the series.
The UK has commitments in place to reduce carbon emissions to 0% by 2050. However to achieve this, carbon reduction needs to be embedded in the planning, design and whole life of assets. Engineers have a key role to play in enabling this to happen by understanding how climate change affects their roles in terms of mitigation and adaptation. WFEO committee member Davide Stronati examines the climate change position in the UK.
In France, 83% of citizens view climate change as a major threat, although an unusually high proportion (20%) think it is already too late to stop the worst effects. In our latest WFEO Climate Stories blog Lylian Coelho Ferreira, WFEO Committee member, looks at how climate change is affecting France, and what the home of the Paris Convention on Climate Change is doing to tackle carbon emissions.
The second largest country by area, Canada is starting to feel a range of climate change effects. As part of our WFEO Climate Stories series, curated by ICE, Darrel Danyluk and David Lapp look at the situation in Canada and how you tackle climate change in such a large and diverse landmass, and why local responses are key.
With Australia’s climate having warmed by roughly 1.44°C since 1910, it is already feeling the effects of climate change. Dr Marlene Kanga looks at the impact of warming on this dry continent, how much of an appetite there is for decarbonisation, and what is being done already to combat climate change.
