Strategic pathways to sustainability in the public education sector

Wednesday 24th March 2010, 10 AM-4.30 PM, The Living Rainforest, UK

heliconiaThis one-day specialist conference, which BGCI is helping to organise, is targeted at directors and senior managers of the UK’s sustainability and environment-related public engagement organisations. These include science and discovery centres, zoos, aquariums, botanic gardens and museums which together engage over 45 million public visitors each year. The day will allow you to take a wider strategic view of climate change, environment and sustainability issues, and question how your organisational vision and operations fit with these priorities. With contributions from leading thinkers and champions in the field, this event looks set to help give valuable food for thought to all who attend.


Includes … contributions or presentations from Shadow Chancellor Vince Cable MP, Zero Carbon Britain / Centre for Alternative Technology, International Institute for Environment and Development, Global Footprint Network, BBGCI, BIAZA and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums.   Plus … an interactive debate on Carbon Offsets – Green promise or Green wash? in collaboration with the new economics foundation (nef).
