Series 6: Biodiversity - A World Environment Day Special
In celebration of this year's World Environment Day theme, the sixth series of Webinars@SocEnv had the umbrella topic of "Biodiversity". Taking place during the week commencing the 1st June, three individual webinars for this series provided cross-disciplinary knowledge transfer opportunities for environmental professionals and beyond. The series was developed and supported by the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM).
Each year, World Environment Day provides a platform for global education and inspiration, encouraging the general public to engage with a pressing environmental issue. ‘Biodiversity’ has been chosen by the UN as this year’s theme.
To help environmental professionals engage with the issue and share good practice, w established this series of webinars. During the three-part series, we heard from Chartered Environmentalists from across sectors on topics such as Biodiversity Net Gain
and what organisations are doing to protect and enhance biodiversity.
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 included a Q&A - with the opportunity for delegates
to submit questions prior to and during the webinar itself.
The recordings for this series are available to watch back via the links below!
