Drawing on two decades' experience working with companies such as HSBC, Shell and BAT, this innovative one day training workshop, grounded in scientific field research, will improve your understanding of climate change in ways which you can relate to your organisation.
Climate change is regarded as one of the greatest threats to our future, but there is little indication about how crucial changes can be made. One of the biggest tasks is to understand what's really happening with climate change and how it will impact upon you and your business. But what can you do to inspire a real understanding and sense of momentum towards your organisation's sustainability targets?
Earthwatch's vision is a global network of sustainability leaders who value the environment and incorporate environmental considerations into their day to day decisions and actions. Our approach is to give you the opportunity to spend time on a climate change research project, understanding the bigger context of climate change firsthand from scientistsand exploring the implications. Working with a group of peers, you will consider what climate change means for your business and will come up with practical ideas that you can put into action.
- A deeper understanding of climate change through visiting a field research project and learning firsthand about climate change science
- An understanding of the connection between climate change issues and your business activities
- The confidence to engage other people in conversations about climate change
- An action plan for engaging your key stakeholders back in the business
- A network of peers from other companies to support learning and action.
The workshop will take place at Earthwatch's Europe Regional Climate Centre in Wytham Woods, near Oxford, where we are undertaking a five year programme of forestry and climate change research, as part of the HSBC Climate Partnership.
Who should attend?
CSR Managers, HR Managers, Senior Managers, and sustainability professionals; however it would suit anyone who wishes to understand the threats and opportunities of climate change and especially those wanting to understand how to turn this knowledge into action.
