IChemE partners with ITN for news-style programme ‘Engineering a Sustainable World’
The UN has outlined its Sustainable Development Goals, with climate action and sustainability at the forefront.
As the fight against climate change becomes increasingly pressing, engineers are tasked with developing innovative technologies and solutions to minimise our environmental footprint.
To raise awareness and understanding of the role that chemical engineers play in addressing climate change, IChemE has partnered with ITN Business to produce a news-style programme ‘Engineering a Sustainable World’.
The programme will delve into the vital role of collaboration between industry and academic institutions, cutting-edge technology and innovation, the development of a sustainable workforce, and the crucial need to inspire the next generation of engineers.
Presented by Lukwesa Burak from the ITN London studio, ‘Engineering a Sustainable World’ will feature best practice case studies, highlighting organisations, and thought leaders at the forefront of innovation. The programme will also explore the essential skills and knowledge required for the next generation of engineers to thrive in our rapidly evolving world.
Nina Harrison-Bell, Head of ITN Business said: "We are thrilled to partner with the Institution of Chemical Engineers to launch 'Engineering a Sustainable World’. This programme will not only shine a light on the critical role chemical engineers play in addressing climate change but also showcase the importance of collaboration, innovation, and skills development as we move towards a more sustainable future."
‘Engineering a Sustainable World’ will combine expert interviews, news items and reporter led sponsored editorial profiles and will premiere at the IChemE Global Awards on 30th November 2023. The programme will be supported by an advertising campaign and will be hosted and promoted on NewScientist.com as well as the IChemE website and ITN Business content hub.
