Engineers are key to climate targets – ICSI Fall 2020 Symposium — Gonzalo Muñoz, Nigel Topping

The International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure hosted its Fall 2020 Symposium in November 2020, one year on after its launch. In this short video, Keynote speakers COP26 High-Level Climate Champions Gonzalo Muñoz, Chile, and Nigel Topping, UK, emphasised the importance of engineers in delivering the changes needed to achieve the targets set by the Paris Agreement.

Speaking 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.
