The project to develop the layers and usability of the IEMA environmental skills map is continuing, with a series of introductory webinars and research events.

The first webinar to introduce the skills map project was held on 3 April. Hosted by project officer Tara Cox, close to 50 delegates attended the webinar, with many following up with interesting comments and questions.

A workshop was subsequently held on 17 May, which carried out a needs analysis of volunteer stakeholders, to determine the usability of the map and practical steps individuals and organisations have taken to embed it.

This analysis will be used to ensure IEMA continues to offer the correct information and support into the future. A follow-up webinar will be held in the coming weeks to finalise the needs analysis and demonstrate to the volunteers what will be happening next.

We are still seeking more members who are willing to be interviewed about their knowledge and skills as part of the research element of this project.

Members do not need to have particular experience or knowledge of the skills map to be an eligible interviewee or to take part in the webinars.

We want to hear from members of all levels of environmental knowledge, understanding, experience, familiarity with the map and membership types. Minimal time is required to participate and any contact will be timed around when you are available.

If you are interested in contributing to the further development of the skills map, please contact Tara Cox at [email protected] or call +44 (0)1522 540069.
