Network’s New Sustainability Lunch & Learn Series Kicks Off

The Broadcasting Sustainability Network is kicking off a new Sustainability Lunch & Learn event series designed to give Network members access to practical knowledge and inspiration on sustainability-related topics.

The sessions will feature speakers both from external organisations and from within the Network itself. As the name suggests, they will take place at lunchtime, from 1 – 2pm, so people can tune in while they grab a bite! Designed to be informal, they will be a mix of presentations/talks, panel discussions, and fireside chats. Each session will allow some time for Q&A so that Network members can ask questions or seek tips and advice from the speakers. The sessions will be facilitated by Network Coordinators SustainabilityWorks.

To get the series off to a flying start we have six fantastic speakers lined for the Autumn, with the sessions happening every second Tuesday, starting on 5th September.

Session #1: Media as a Catalyst for Climate Action. With Manuel Salazar from Extinction Rebellion. Tuesday 5th September, 1 – 2pm. Click here to register.

These sessions are open to all organisations that are members of the Broadcasting Sustainability Network. There is no limit to the number of people from any one organisation that can take part, or in the case of representative organisations, no limit to the number of member organisations who can take part. Sessions will be relevant to people in a range of different roles and functions, across both operational and content/editorial/creative roles. For this reason, we encourage Network members to spread the word to their colleagues and encourage them to join the sessions they are most interested in.

Look forward to seeing you all for some lunching & learning soon!
