Recently, three projects have addressed the challenge that while many excellent resources on sustainability education exist, there aren’t many that explicitly guide engineering educators to integrate these into their teaching, or indeed that are intended to upskill engineering academics to be able to deliver this teaching. These projects are the Reimagined Degree Map project undertaken by Engineers Without Borders UK (sponsored by the Royal Academy of Engineering), the Sustainability Toolkit project undertaken by the UK’s Engineering Professors’ Council (sponsored by Siemens and the Royal Academy of Engineering), and the Engineering for One Planet Framework and two companion guides, co-created by hundreds of engineering education stakeholders (sponsored The Lemelson Foundation). All aim to build the capacity of educators to embed sustainability knowledge, skills and mindsets in their modules, courses or curriculum that will enable students to become competent in globally responsible engineering practice. In cooperation with academic, industry, and advocacy group leaders, these projects have resulted in the development of several educational tools that are presented in the workshop.
