IEMA Futures: Sustainability Conference

November 14 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Free

“Discussing the role we have to play in securing a sustainable future”

With a recent poll showing two thirds of the UK public now support increased action on climate change, and with movements like Extinction Rebellion and school strikes taking place around the globe, it is clear the future of our planet is no longer just an issue for sustainability professionals.

IEMA Futures is a network of young professionals passionate about inspiring the future voices of sustainability and champions of the environment. Being a part of the network brings a wealth of benefits from networking with peers to opportunities for learning and development.

We would love for you to join us at the University of Salford where, through a series of talks from renowned professionals and interactive workshops designed to promote wider thinking, you will learn more about sustainability, what role you can play, and how you can help foster a sustainable future.

If you require further information, please contact us or read our FAQs.
