Whether you’re just learning about global responsibility or its principles are already central to your work, we want and need you to be a part of this movement for change.
Reaching the tipping point where global responsibility becomes integral to the way all engineering is taught and practiced will not be easy. But we believe in the power of the movement. Together, the actions of Engineers Without Borders UK’s members – small or large – will put global responsibility at the heart of engineering, ensuring a safe and just future for all.
When joining the movement, you will be asked to identify the actions you will take to transform engineering in line with the principles of global responsibility. You can read more about why we want to see these principles adopted across the engineering community here.
I will take action to transform engineering, ensuring a safe and just future for all. I will be:
Responsible. I will put global responsibility at the heart of engineering. I will own my responsibility in this.
Purposeful. I will consider all of the consequences that my decisions could have. I will work to ensure that the needs of people and our planet are prioritised.
Inclusive. I will ensure that diverse viewpoints and knowledge are heard, included and respected throughout the engineering process. I will advocate for those not in the room.
Regenerative. I will restore and regenerate rather than just reducing impact. I will play my part in regenerating ecological systems.
To support the continued development of our programmes and opportunities, we provide the opportunity for members to make a financial contribution. Before making your commitment and identifying the actions you will take to embed global responsibility in your day-to-day, you’ll be taken to set up a regular donation. Most of our members donate £3 per month (or £36 per year), however, you are able to select whatever amount suits you.
To ensure membership is accessible to all, we are pleased to be able to offer a complimentary membership to anyone who is committed to global responsibility but unable to make a donation at this time. Please get in touch with us at [email protected] to set up a complimentary membership.
