Community engagement with civil engineering is essential to deliver the UN Sustainable Development Goals and to address 'wicked' problems such as climate change. This paper explains how the Institution of Civil Engineers developed its statement of Principles for Community Engagement with Engineering to underpin best practice across the infrastructure project life cycle. The principles are intended to be adaptable to suit a range of contexts, sectors and scales of project, and to support civil engineers at different stages of their career and levels of influence. They provide a foundation for further development of best-practice case studies and guidance, to be shared through civil engineering education and professional development.
