‘Incredibly uplifting and hopeful’ – Brunel lecture series moves climate action forward

Speaking at the closing lecture, Seth Schultz admitted that he had previously been sceptical that the engineering community was willing to make changes in order to deal with the climate emergency. But the profession has shown that it is, and this response was consistent around the world, and from very senior or retired engineers, right down to new graduates.

What can we learn from the WFEO climate stories?

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.

WFEO climate stories: UK

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.

WFEO climate stories: Kenya

Kenya has experienced an increase in droughts and floods in the last few years due to the effects of climate change. WFEO Engineering and the Environment committee member Christine Adongo Ogut looks at how climate change is affecting Kenya, and what is being done to reduce carbon emissions in the latest WFEO climate stories blog curated by ICE.

WFEO climate stories: France

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.
