Registration is now open for this year’s IEMA Connect event – what can attendees expect?

This year, IEMA Connect is even bigger and bolder than before, opening with an introduction from COP26 minister Alok Sharma and spotlighting the work being done by members around the world to make change, as well as the challenges presented by the climate emergency. The need for green skills and green jobs has never been more important if we are to reach net zero or even limit global warming to 1.5°C by 2050. We will be looking at our recent report on green skills (bit.ly/IEMA_GreenSkills), produced in partnership with Deloitte, which provides individuals and organisations with guidance on how to be better equipped within workplaces and careers.

“The need for green skills and green jobs has never been more important if we are to reach net zero or even limit global warming to 1.5°C by 2050”

IEMA Connect will be taking place online from Wednesday 19 to Wednesday 26 October, so will be fully accessible to all IEMA members. It will feature a diverse panel of speakers from around the world and provide tailored content for everyone who works, studies or is interested in environment and sustainability; sessions are available for all levels of experience. New for this year, we will be asking members to nominate someone whose work within the environment and sustainability profession has been exceptional for our ‘IEMA Champion’ recognition, which we are excited to see unfold.

You’ll be able to register to watch and engage in webinars, workshops, roundtables and discussion groups, all of which will enhance your continuing professional development. Some of the topics we’ll be covering include:

  • COP15
  • COP27
  • Green skills and jobs
  • Latest policy updates and insights
  • Upskilling
  • Impact assessment
  • Circular economy
  • Biodiversity.

Alongside these, you will be able to join practical sessions from our Membership, Training, Networks and Corporate groups to discuss benefits for you and your organisations.

Key speakers at IEMA Connect will include:

Chibeze Ezekiel, co-ordinator at Strategic Youth Network for Development

Sophie Howe, future generations commissioner for Wales

Olivia Whitlam, head of sustainability at Siemens

Dr Eric Twum, an environment, climate change and energy expert.

Make sure to not miss out and book your place at IEMA Connect to engage with peers from around the globe – registration is now open at www.iema.net/events/iema-connect.
