To celebrate the upcoming Earth Day, the webinar explores how environmental sustainability can inspire young people into engineering and technology.


EngineeringUK’s Head of Environmental Sustainability, Mike Hardisty explains, “Research shows that young people care about the environment, and many even suffer from ‘eco-anxiety’. At the same time young people often aren’t aware of the connection between climate change and engineering solutions and, as a result, may be missing out on considering a career in engineering.

'Putting environmental sustainability at the heart of STEM engagement programmes and showcasing the central role engineers have in achieving net-zero has the potential to inspire more young people to pursue a career in the sector. We encourage the engineering community to check out the guidance and careers resources we have developed to support them with their outreach activities and to inform young people about green careers.'
