Join Siemens at their first global online gathering and learn about the Sustainability Toolkit.
Please join Siemens online at 15.00-16.00 CEST (14.00-15.00 BST) on Wednesday 7th June to hear news from the network and connect with sustainability-engaged educators from around the world. If you are attending the gathering from a time zone other than CEST or BST please click here to check what time the session takes place in your time zone.
Please note, this is NOT an EPC-run event, please click the 'Register' button below to be redirected to an external website where you can register to attend.
Siemens is excited to welcome a guest speaker, Sarah Jayne Hitt, Ph.D. SFHEA and Project Manager for the Engineering Professors Council (EPC) Sustainability Toolkit. The EPC is embarking on a collaborative project with Siemens, RAEng and a structure of academic and industry experts and key stakeholders. The aim is to develop an open-source toolkit for engineering educators to ensure that all new graduate engineers are equipped to tackle the serious sustainability challenges facing the environment and society. By curating a toolkit of resources that help academics explicitly embed sustainability in their day-to-day practice of engineering teaching, we can all help make sustainability integral rather than tangential to engineering learning.
The event will provide you with:
Updates from the Siemens Skills for Sustainability Network;
News about the Sustainability Toolkit;
An opportunity to interact and network with engineering educators from around the world.
Siemens hope that you can join the event. If you have any questions or would like to recommend a colleague to participate, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Siemens.
After registering for the event, please do take a look at the useful resources shared by Siemens by clicking on the accordion tabs.

During this year’s online Siemens Skills for Sustainability Network roundtables, Siemens heard about the pressing need for more and better materials from industry for teaching about sustainability. As an immediate response, Siemens put together four sustainability case studies based on existing Siemens materials, and developed a summary, additional student-oriented resources (reading or video) and a series of questions and assignment prompts.
The Student Voice ”Skills for Sustainability” Survey Report
The Siemens ‘Skills for Sustainability’ survey was launched in November 2022 as a pilot. The objective was to give students a voice in how sustainability is addressed globally in engineering education. Insights from the project leader at Siemens and the student organizations can be found in the panel discussion summary exploring the survey results on page 5 of the report.
