Launching Green Impact webinar series

Tuesday 14-07-2020 - 13:37

SOS-UK are launching a monthly webinar series specifically for Green Impact teams

 

We're excited to launch an interactive webinar series, covering a range of sustainability topics, for all Green Impact organisations to promote to their teams. We're looking forward to reaching hundreds of staff and students across the Green Impact network, as this will be the first time that staff from different organisations will be joining the same webinars. Staff from hospitals, universities, local councils and businesses will be able to collaborate, share ideas and network during these webinars.

Each month, we will share the webinar series with each organisation, to promote to their Green Impact teams. All webinars will be hosted through Zoom and recorded for people to access at a later date. 

We'll be announcing speakers and further webinars soon but for now, here is a taster of what's to come!
