Join us for Green Impact webinars and support calls

Monday 27-06-2016 - 14:37

Share good practice, learn new skills and network with peers as part of the national Green Impact movement.                 

We’ve created a series of free webinars and support calls to ensure we are constantly supporting people delivering our programmes.

Whether it’s by providing learning and development opportunities, fostering a peer-support network, or sharing good practice, we’re delighted to launch a monthly schedule of events you can access from the comfort of your desk. And it’s totally free, if you’re a Green Impact participant.

Tell me about the webinars

The webinars will be a learning and development opportunity designed to give participants insight into current best practice from across Green Impact and the broader sustainability agenda.

It’ll be delivered by current Green Impact participants, NUS’ sustainability team and external guests.  They will be informative and include multiple case studies. Although there will be opportunities for active participation, they will be less discursive than the support calls.

We’ll be using Skype for Business online meeting software. To fully participate it’s helpful if you have a webcam, microphone and speaker/headphone although it’s possible to participate with just the speaker/headphone. You can familiarise yourself with this software, and troubleshoot any issues you have using it, before attending a webinar by clicking here.

Webinars will be recorded so if you can’t make them, you’ll be able to watch them at a later date.

Tell me about the support calls

The support calls are very much a networking opportunity for you to share your experiences in an informal way through the year, with others across the country running similar programmes.

This helps develop and nurture the Green Impact community and enables peer-to-peer support, trouble shooting and sharing of good practice and innovation.

Members of the NUS sustainability team will be on hand to facilitate and answer any questions or queries that arise. Their focus is on the functional elements of delivering a Green Impact programme.

For the support calls, we will be using telephone conference call so all you need is a phone line.
