Training Initiative launched

With plans to launch a training initiative Jacobs has formed a partnership with Engineers Without Borders UK.

The Jacobs Advocate Programme is intended to teach 30 advocates the principle of globally responsible engineering to enable them to drive change within Jacobs.

To be delivered through a design challenge, Reshaping Engineering will take place over a month. Those taking part will be asked to work across disciplines to design an effective, equitable and sustainable solution to a real-life engineering challenge.

Director of Jacobs’ Office of Global Climate Response, Adam Liddle said: “We know we have a moral obligation to deliver a positive societal and environmental impact through the solutions we provide globally. With the world facing enormous challenges from the increasing threat of climate change, international conflict, social inequalities and cost of living crisis it is now critical to ensure a global responsibility is at the heart of our solutions. This is why we have partnered with Engineers Without Borders to deliver Jacobs Advocate Programme”.
