Could your students have the answers to the world’s greatest environmental challenges? This collection is for you to inspire them to change the world with the wonders of modern engineering.

Engineering for a healthy planet

Engineering is fundamental in addressing the world’s increasing environmental challenges, from global warming to the scarcity of fresh water and the loss of biodiversity.  

Be it through sourcing economical clean energy or developing more sustainable and resilient cities, the engineers of tomorrow will make a huge, positive impact on the planet. 

This collection of inspirational environmentally-themed experiences and case studies will help your students understand the real-life applications of STEM subjects, and to inspire young people to think about how they could create a more sustainable future.
