The importance of engineers in delivering climate targets – Gonzalo Muñoz and Nigel Topping

In this short video, Keynote speakers COP26 High-Level Climate Champions Gonzalo Muñoz, Chile, and Nigel Topping, UK, emphasised to participants at the ICSI Fall 2020 Symposium, the importance of engineers in delivering the changes needed to achieve the targets set by the Paris Agreement.

Speaking to ICSI members at the time of the ongoing ‘Race to Zero Dialogues’ organized by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the High-Level Champions said ICSI can serve as an important driver in achieving net-zero and climate resilience goals as engineers are natural problem solvers. High-Level Champion Nigel Topping said, “People need to be inspired — they are creating an exciting future they can be proud of and it is engineers who will build that”.

ICSI has declared its intention to contribute to the transformational change we need through action.
