An Update from our Chief Executive and Chair

Welcome to the April edition of our e-newsletter. 

Since our last update in February a lot has changed, and we have all had to adapt to a challenging environment as a result of the spread of COVID-19. However, the wider environmental issues and opportunities we face have not gone away - and indeed there will be new opportunities which will now present themselves in the post-Covid times to come.

Here at SocEnv we have adapted to ensure we can continue to act as a champion of the environmental profession, including by further expanding our popular webinars. As ever, we are here to support you as you carry out your hugely important work.

Virtual Learning: Our Upcoming Webinars

To meet the increasing demand, we have expanded our popular webinars, led by our Chartered Environmentalists.

The latest series of our regular webinars runs throughout May on the topic of ‘Climate Change’.  Sub-topics under the umbrella theme include the roles materials, Environmental Impact Assessment and land use professionals can and do play in tackling climate change. You can register to attend here.

In addition, we are also running a special series of webinars during the week commencing the 1st June, in celebration of this year’s World Environment Day theme of Biodiversity. Bookings will be open for this series shortly.

Nominate an Outstanding Environmental Professional

Could you be recognised for your outstanding environmental work? Do you know a deserving colleague who has recently gone above and beyond to protect or enhance the environment?

This year, in addition to the annual Environmental Professional of the Year award, we have introduced a new category - Registrant Newcomer of the Year – designed to specifically highlight those who have hit the ground running since recently achieving CEnv or REnvTech registration.

Both awards close for nominations at 12:00 BST on the 14th May, with the awards being presented virtually on the 5th June.
