Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Energy Coordinator Meetup - Summer 2019

It’s time for the sizzling summer Energy Coordinator Meetup, but this time will be a little different. Open to staff Energy Coordinators only - please get in touch if you are interested in joining the network.

We’re taking time out to focus on the bigger picture and will delve into climate change as a whole. We will demystify some of the terms and concepts around climate science, look at where carbon emissions come from and explore ways to encourage and support others to take steps to reduce their carbon footprint.

Outcomes

By the end of the session you will:

  • Have a deeper understanding of the science of climate change and what a net zero target means.
  • Be more confident to talk to people about climate change
  • Be able to identify low carbon behaviours
  • Understand the opportunities and barriers when adopting low carbon behaviours.

 

Lunch will be provided from 13:00. Please bring a refillable bottle.
