With the design, development and launch of Engineering Climate Action we know what we’re doing and why. Now, it’s time for the how – and we want you.

We need to develop and deliver resources for engineers to take purposeful action and have the tools to ensure climate action becomes incorporated into your and your clients’ work. We’ll also be looking at how we advocate for change.

To achieve this, we need engineering professionals to help oversee our Engineering Climate Action programme. Applicants must support Engineering New Zealand’s position on climate action to be considered for appointment.

If you’re interested in helping, we’re calling for expressions of interest for the following:

Engineering Climate Action Steering Group

Are you passionate about the role engineers play in addressing climate change? Do you have governance, programme management, stakeholder management, mātauranga Māori expertise and/or experience working in government?

The Steering Group will provide oversight, guidance and governance of Te Ao Rangahau’s Engineering Climate Action programme. This will include the delivery of tangible tools and resources for engineers.

Please contact us to receive a copy of the draft terms of reference.

Engineering Climate Action Practice Note Working Group

Engineering New Zealand is responsible for setting and maintaining standards of professionalism for engineers. We do this in a number of ways, including developing practice notes for the profession. Could you help us deliver a practice note for climate change?

The Practice Note Working Group supports the drafting of Engineering New Zealand’s Practice Notes on climate change. If you have a professional background in sustainability, climate change, academia, mātauranga Māori and/or standards, then we want to hear from you.

How to apply

If you’re keen to volunteer your knowledge, skills and experience to help the engineering profession feel well equipped to embed climate action into their work – we'd love to hear from you.

To apply to either the Steering Group or the Practice Note Working Group, please email us the following:

  1. Curriculum vitae
  2. A paragraph outlining suitability for appointment (either for the Steering Group or the Practice Note Working Group).

We'll then provide you more information on the appointments process. Expressions of interest close 28 November 2022.
