UK Links biennial conference 2021: session 3: Could all jobs be Green Jobs?

07 Sep 2021

via zoom

The levers for change: Environment Links UK biennial conference 2021

7 September 1130 – 1330: Could all jobs be Green Jobs?

The public profile of ‘green jobs’ is on the rise. Over the last year, members of Link organisations have worked hard to position ourselves as employers of good quality green jobs; the agents of a green recovery. However, recent reports, such as Westminster’s Green Jobs Taskforce, have placed emphasis on green skills and greening of the workforce as a whole.

In this online interactive event, we will consider the merits of broadening our vision for green jobs to include a much greater share of the 35 million employees. Where are the opportunities to involve all workers in positive steps towards recovery of nature and building climate resilience? Which professions could do with green skills injection from Link organisations? How do Link organisations help all of government gain a rounded view of what green jobs are, and what they can do?

Led by NI Environment Link and the Ecosystems Knowledge Network. Joining details here.

The levers for change: Environment Links UK biennial conference 2021

2 September 1130 – 1330: Session 2: Nature

COP-15 of the Convention on Biological Diversity will take place in China in early 2022. The outcome will guide global conservation efforts for a decade, and early indications had shown high ambition for halting nature’s decline and creating a nature-positive economy. Recently, however, ambition has wavered. What should we hope for from the negotiations in terms of targets, area-based protection and the crucial accountability mechanism? And how can the four countries of the UK contribute, collectively and through individual country-level leadership?

Join us for a look ahead at the negotiations and how the four Links can play a part. Joining details here.

UK Links biennial conference 2021 session 1: Setting our seas on a path to recovery

31 Aug 2021

via zoom

The levers for change: Environment Links UK biennial conference 2021

31 August 1130 – 1330: Session 1: Setting our seas on a path to recovery

Our seas are one of the UK’s greatest assets and yet, under pressure like never before. They provide vital ecosystem services, including food provision, protection from storms, nutrient cycling and mitigation of climate change impacts, but ongoing destruction of marine habitats and ecosystems impair their ability to provide these life-sustaining benefits.

Transformative change in how we use, manage, connect to, and ultimately protect and recover our ocean is urgently needed. To ensure that nature thrives, and the ecosystem service provided by the marine environment are available to future generations, our Administrations and Governments must commit to delivering ocean recovery.

For the opening session of Environment Links UK biennial meeting 2021, Scottish Environment LINK invites you to reflect on the actions needed to set our part of the global Ocean on a path to recovery! We will also showcase the inspiring stories of communities who work to protect and enhance Scotland’s marine environment.

Get ready to be inspired! Joining details here.
