Schools given opportunity to join climate debate

The ninth Tomorrow’s Engineers Week (8-12 November 2021) will see schools across the UK given the chance to take part in the climate debate.

With the 2021 edition of the Week coinciding with the COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow, Tomorrow’s Engineers Week will place an emphasis on demonstrating how engineering careers can contribute to tackling climate change and achieving net zero.

A packed calendar will see engineering institutions, employers and schools come together to deliver inspiring activity to give young people the opportunity to discuss solutions to the climate crisis.

The Week will feature a unique “Schools COP” where students around the country will come together virtually to discuss the vital importance of achieving net zero.

The event will also explore how the engineers behind technological and scientific breakthroughs will be at the heart of the world’s response to climate change in the coming years.

Details of how young people, schools, parents and employers can take part in the Week are available on www.teweek.org.uk.

In the past three years alone, Tomorrow’s Engineers Week has seen over 130,000 young people take part in interactive engineering activities, almost half a million views of inspiring films about engineers on a mission to make the world a better place, hundreds of millions of social media content views and widespread media coverage.
