Women in Sustainability

Women in Sustainability, Oxford Hub

Drastic measures are being taken over Covid-19, what can we learn which we can apply to our Climate Change response?

We’ve seen governments, businesses and individuals all around the world taking fast and drastic action in response to a pandemic in clear contrast to the slow, incremental and frankly inadequate response to the Climate and Biodiversity Emergency.

In this online event we’ll be looking to identify the keys to unlocking the far bigger challenge of the threat of Climate Change.

Orlaith Delargy is a sustainability consultant based in Dublin and coordinates the Irish Forum on Natural Capital.

Her special interest and expertise are in sustainable finance and natural capital risks and opportunities to the private sector.

Orlaith will speak about how the private and particularly the financial sector could change both now and when we come out of the other side of the Corona Virus crisis.

Agnes Altmets is a social scientist, change maker, and one of edie 30 under 30: the next generation of sustainability leaders.

She has over a decade of experience working in data and research and her focus is on implementing sustainable change.

Agnes will discuss how we might go about ensuring a just transition to a more sustainable future.

There’ll still be an opportunity to connect meaningfully in small groups. At Women in Sustainability we are always aware that there is so much more expertise in the room than just that of our brilliant speakers.

You’ll get time to come up with solutions, share your concerns and work on ways to collaborate.

We’ll focus on:

1) How can we start to set up new systems of working and new strategic plans now?

2) How can we avoid a return to Business as Usual with the accompanying spike in emissions and runaway climate change?

3) How can we support each other in our current situation?

Who’s it for?

  • Women working in sustainability at all levels and sectors.
  • You’ve been working in sustainability for a while but are looking for a change.
  • You’re new to sustainability and want to get prepared for the road ahead.
  • You’re established in your career and wondering how you can progress or change what you do.
  • You’ve had a varied career and have wisdom to share.
  • What will you get from attending?
  • You’ll come away with inspiration, energy, new insights about your own situation as well as strategies and tactics for designing your own change.
