World Environment Day Awards and Lectures | A Great Success!
When was it? 4th June 2019 | Where? The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew played host to the Society’s Annual World Environment Day Awards and Lectures – “A Spotlight On Net Gain” – on the eve of World Environment Day.
We heard from a series of experts on the chosen topic of “Net Gain” - a topical choice, complementing the connected global World Environment Day theme of "Air Pollution”. Lectures were positive, challenging and a testament to the outstanding work of environmental professionals. Speakers included; Dr Thérèse Coffey MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at Defra, Nick Blyth CEnv, Policy and Engagement Lead at IEMA and Claire Wansbury CEnv, Associate Director of Ecology at Atkins.
The event saw the presentation of the 2019 Environmental Professional of the Year Award – recognising the outstanding work of CEnv and REnvTech registrants. Jerome Baddley CEnv was announced as the well deserving overall winner. "What an inspiring person" said one delegate - something we very much agree with!
