HLPF 2021 – Deploying Global Youth Capacity in UN Policy and Engineering for SDG 13

WFEO and its Committee on Young Engineers / Future Leaders organized the HLPF 2021 side event “Deploying Global Youth Capacity in UN Policy and Engineering for SDG 13” on Friday, 09 July 2021, as a side event of the 2021 edition of the High-level Political Forum

The crises of climate breakdown are the most serious issues of our time. Our major infrastructure systems of transport, energy, water, waste, telecommunications and flood defenses play a major part, accounting for a vast portion of energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions whilst also having a significant impact on our natural habitats.

WFEO continues to raise awareness of the climate emergency and the urgent need for action amongst WFEO National Member Engineering Organizations and WFEO Partners, all stakeholders within the National Members and with Governments.

The event aimed for an engineering community where a diverse and inclusive membership can work collaboratively towards innovative climate mitigation strategies, engaging women and young engineers in particular to combat climate change.
