UCU CPD Introduction to Sustainability Webinar- Wales, Tuesday 26 January 1:30pm

26 January 2021, 13:30 - 15:00
Online (Zoom)

An Introduction to Sustainability pilot webinar will be delivered via zoom. While places are necessary limited I do hope that you will join us, and subsequently share your impressions to help us refine it.

The full aims of the interactive webinar are to:

  1. understand student demand for sustainability and climate education
  2. Explore the meaning of sustainability
  3. Make the connection between sustainability and climate education
  4. Understand the relevant frameworks defining sustainability, and how to apply them.

How it will work

The session will be led by Students Organising For Sustainability –UK, who have worked closely with UCU on these issues. The taught session will last for about 50-60 minutes, after which UCU’s policy office who leads on sustainability will lead a discussion on what this all means for you, which should take another 15 to 20 minutes. The total time commitment will be less than an hour and a half.

You will need to find a quiet space, away from distractions (like telephone and email!), and you may prefer to use headphones for the session. I would also recommend that you check that you can use zoom before the session if you are unfamiliar with it.

I do need to stress that if you do say that you want to be involved I need you to treat that as a commitment as the webinar will be over-subscribed. 

You will then be sent a meeting number and password for the webinar using zoom, along with a couple of points to think about before the webinar. You will be able to join the session from about 10 minutes before the stated start time. I would also recommend that you do join 5 to 10 minutes early as you will need to be admitted to the session, and of course there can be technical problems.

Bookings are no longer allowed on this date.
