The Cork Amendment to the Barcelona Declaration (June 2021)

Context: The Barcelona Declaration emanated from the 2nd Engineering Education for Sustainable Development (EESD2004) conference in Barcelona in 2004, and sought to normatively propose the appropriate role and responsibilities of engineering education from the start of the twenty first century. The Cork Amendment was proposed as an update to the Barcelona Declaration to cohere with emerging engineering education and broader societal trends and imperatives from the 2020’s and beyond. It was formulated following the 10th Engineering Education for Sustainable Development (EESD2021) conference at Cork in 2021, and was informed by a primer paper and EESD2021 delegate conference workshop, hosted by Prof. Richard Fenner and Dr Dai Morgan of the University of Cambridge.
