In his winning entry to the Institution’s Kenneth Severn Award 2020 – an annual essay competition for young engineers – Will Rogers-Tizard argues that structural engineers can help tackle the climate emergency by making better use of materials, understanding carbon values and questioning industry norms.

Submitted in January, the essay anticipates many of the questions currently being explored in the ‘Climate emergency’ section in The Structural Engineer.
