It’s been four years since UNESCO assigned the 4th of march as The World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development, with the goal to generate awareness about how important the different engineering disciplines are in fostering an ecofriendly future.
Originally, this day was about the implementation of sustainable initiatives in Africa and the Small Island Developing States (SIDS); such as Barbados, Samoa, Maldives and others, but now it has become even more relevant due the efforts to achieve Global Goals against climate change aimed to build a sustainable social progress and economic growth.
In accordance with The United Nations, “the second Global Sustainable Development Report will be launched this September, just in time to highlight the half way of the 2030 Agenda and while the world is struggling to rebuild after the COVID-19 pandemic”. This will provide the necessary facts to ”accelerate action and overcome impediments that stand in the way of progress on sustainable development”. (Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR) 2023)
At Ammper Power, we know there i
’s a lot to achieve in our way concerning energy transition. , This is why we support and encourage our engineers, to keep searching for innovative solutions changing the future for a sustainable progress.
