Workshop:

Reigniting your Passion and Purpose

This workshop is for sustainability professionals facing the challenges of the world, acknowledging this time of uncertainty yet recognising what is possible.  We can’t do it all, but together we can do so much. 

So many of us need to take better care of ourselves to avoid burn-out, and stay passionate and with purpose.  We will take time to remind ourselves what we love in the world, what we care for and wish for.  We will acknowledge our concerns and uncertainties and use these to find a focus for our efforts going forward. 

We will explore how can we be innovative, whist maintaining integrity and strength professionally and emotionally.  Exploring how we wish to respond authentically, and with encouragement, to our colleagues, staff and students, as they gain awareness of the severity of the climate and ecological crisis, and turn to us for solutions and answers.

Above all, this workshop will reignite our personal power, passion and purpose,
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life” (Mary Oliver)

Scope 3 and Embodied Carbon Roundtable

As we continue to monitor and measure our Carbon Emissions, there are still challenges facing us.  Some of us may have a good handle on our Scope 1 and 2 emissions but are still in the infant stages of how to measure and deal with Scope 3.  This session will look at various Scope 3 issues, including flying, embodied carbon and how we, as the customer have influence over our suppliers manufacturing processes and, as we ask more from them, ultimately helping them to change their business model.

Sector Offsetting Roundtable

14:30 - 16:00

This session will bring together sector leaders to discuss the various options facing the sector for offsetting. We will be aiming to develop a sector wide ‘basket of options’ for offsetting. We will be exploring offsetting schemes within the sector such as using sector owned land as well as external offsetting schemes that bring ‘added value’ such as utilising researchers within the institution. We will also be looking at options for insetting where institutions are ring fencing investments to benefit the institution themselves. We will be sharing offsetting strategies and policies.
