IEMA confirms sustainability conference programme
The line-up for IEMA's Leading in sustainability conference on 24 September has been confirmed.
The conference – the first of three taking place before the end of the year – will be held in Cambridge.
It will provide delegates with the opportunity to learn about critical challenges in sustainability through an economic lens, with a focus on climate change and energy economics, natural resource dependencies, risks, externalities and the economic mega-trends.
IEMA has secured a number of leading sustainability professionals to speak at the event, which has been planned with the regional steering groups of the Institute’s East of England and South East members.
As well as choosing from a workshop programme, delegates will be able to participate in a “World café” session, facilitated by Penny Walker, to share and learn with fellow professionals.
Remaining spaces are limited, so book your place now at iema.net/conference-sustainable-growth.
