On World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development, we explore the collaboration behind this day of action and look at how the engineering community is contributing to the global climate agenda with insights from Davide Stronati and Kancheepuram N Gunalan.
The need for collaboration, innovation and reskilling were hot topics for debate at the latest Brunel lecture with Seth Schultz featuring speakers from Europe and Resilience Shift Board member Jo da Silva DBE

Over the next 15 years, the OECD has estimated that around $103 trillion investment is needed to support our ageing and deteriorating critical infrastructure systems globally. Is the civil engineering community ready to deliver this investment?
The latest edition of the series will kick off on 2 December 2020 before travelling virtually around the world, exploring how the engineering community can deliver a carbon-neutral and resilient society by mid-century.
With gaps in funding identified as a top barrier to the progress of resilient, climate-informed infrastructure, the launch of the City Climate Finance Gap Fund marks a major milestone towards overcoming barriers to progress for resilient infrastructure.
We’re working at a leadership level to unlock the opportunity of using engineers as a driving positive force for impact. The potential of post-Covid economic stimuli requires us to ensure that we are picking the right infrastructure projects to fund and then designing and building them with resilience in mind from the outset.
