Sustainability in the Public Education/Engagement Sector, Part II


Practical pathways for operational and educational practice in public engagement institutions

Wednesday 29th September 2010, 10 AM-4.30 PM

Embedding Sustainability is targeted at senior managers, trustees, directors and educators in sustainability and environment-related public engagement organisations. It will ask how we, as visitor attractions, can really practice what we preach in terms of sustainability and environment - with the aim of sharing ways to make our own operations and programmes more environmentally friendly – and involve our visitors in this journey. We envisage an enlivening day with leading practitioners and experts to help invigorate your organisation’s operations and programmes.

Includes … contributions from Ola Ullsten (Former Swedish PM and chairman, World Council for Corporate Governance), Franny Armstrong’s 10:10 campaign with The Guardian, the innovation-driving Technology Strategy Board, Natural England, Sustainable Schools Initiative, ZSL and the Eden Project. Plus … the latest from the science centre, botanic garden and zoo communities which together engage over 45 million visitors a year in the UK alone.

Conference venue: Human Impact Building, The Living Rainforest, Berkshire.

Organized by the Trust for Sustainable Living in association with the UK Association for Science & Discovery Centres (ASDC), Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) and the British & Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA).
