Why are we facing a climate and ecosystem crisis? Can we influence what comes next?
Lorraine Jenks will summarise the science, recent research, reports and targets; draw parallels between Covid and Climate; demystify the hype, tired clichas, corporate-speak and acronyms. She will share tips and techniques that do the work for us around the trending jargon called the “circular economy”, conscious procurement and sustainable supply chainâ€¦ surprisingly simply ways to make better choices¦ better choices that we should and “they” must make.
An entertaining motivation and a call to action to leave the group feeling well-informed, confident and with the courage to demand actions that will future-proof families and careers.
