West of Scotland Session 3: Learning from the Environmental Impacts of COVID-19
On this session we look at the measures which have been put in place due to COVID-19 and how have they changed our impact on the environment and what we can learn from this
IEMA West of Scotland are hosting a series of 45-minute lunchtime digital events over the coming months exploring how some of the measures which have been put in place due to COVID-19 have changed our impact on the environment and what we can learn from this. As the effect which we have on this world becomes more evident, we will explore how we can move forward from this experience towards a more positive and sustainable future.
In this third digital session, we discussed the topics of global trade impacts, partnerships which had affected positive environmental change and other topics you would like to raise. Join us, for your opportunity to engage with other IEMA members on these topics with a Q&A session at the end of each presentation.
*This event is recognised as 45 minutes of IEMA CPD
