The final part of a four part series focused on the topic of "Climate Change - A 2020 Perspective". This new webinar series continues our cross-disciplinary, knowledge sharing, expert led webinars designed to provide good practice case studies and insight into key topics from a range of sectors - providing different perspectives, but all with the goal of protecting and enhancing our environment. 

We hear from Chartered Environmentalists from professional bodies, universities and independent consultancies. Sub-topics under the umbrella theme include the likely impact of climate change on global water security and the roles of materials, Environmental Impact Assessment and countryside professionals in tackling climate change.

While our CEnv speakers and those linked with their work are specialists in their field, they provide the perspectives from different sectors, which makes for an interesting debate. Each webinar includes a Q&A - with the opportunity to submit your questions prior to and during the webinar itself. 

To find out more about the speakers and their talks for part four, and/or to listen and participate for free on Tuesday, 26th May 2020 (12:00 - 13:00 BST), please keep reading. 


Talk #1:

Land Use Professionals and Net Zero

Who do you work with? The importance of networking for the good husbandry of our countryside.

Talk #2:

Jobs in a Changing Climate

Based on a view of two stages – pre full climate change where we still hope to be able to minimize impacts and post tipping point leading to irreversible changes to climate potentially from 2030 onwards – what does this mean in terms of jobs?  Where there is a challenge – and we are facing a massive one – there are also opportunities, as well as things to be left behind.  Measures taken during the coronavirus crisis may be giving us some indication of what could be done and what types of jobs may, almost, be a thing of the past – if we are serious about trying to curb emissions.  Food for thought rather than a precise solution.

By Kirsten Rottcher CEnv - Independent Consultant, RoettcherKonsult

Kirsten’s work includes environmental & social management planning, impact assessment, from baseline studies to strategic assessment with strong focus on stakeholder engagement and institutional capacity assessment. Sectors of work include transport, energy, urban development, decentralized rural development and natural resource management.
