The IEMA community's news for November.

Salford to host IEMA Futures Sustainability Conference

The IEMA Futures network is set to visit the University of Salford for a series of talks and interactive workshops

With movements such as Extinction Rebellion and the school climate strikes taking place around the globe, it is clear that the future of our planet is no longer just an issue for sustainability professionals.

IEMA Futures is a network of young professionals who are passionate about inspiring the future voices of sustainability and champions of the environment. Being a part of the network brings a wealth of benefits, offering chances to network with peers and providing opportunities for learning and development.

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 in furthering it, and how you can help to foster a sustainable future.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Pauline Giroux, senior corporate responsibility manager, Yorkshire Building Society
  • Andrew Clark, lecturer in environmental management, University of Salford
  • Andrew McMullen, environmental impact director, LEGO Group
  • Nicola Stopps, CEO, Simply Sustainable
  • Grace Corn, project manager, SOS-UK

More speakers to be announced shortly.
