Shaping the World: Turning knowledge into action

Civil engineers build the essential infrastructure which society depends on. As industry thought leaders, ICE’s members and partners can help turn engineering knowledge into action.

Our Shaping the World initiative (STW) was launched in 2013, with HRH The Princess Royal as its patron. STW supports projects that address pressing global challenges, including water poverty, growing urbanisation, energy shortages and dramatic climate effects
