CIWM Presidential Conference (Part 1)

UK governments have ambitious plans to stimulate a green recovery post-COVID, develop robust frameworks for environmental protection and enhancement, and achieve net zero emissions by 2050. Creating a workforce that is has the right skills sits at the heart of these commitments and requires action at every level – from promoting STEM subjects in schools to upskilling young professionals working in relevant industry sectors and re-skilling those in transition industries. This one-day conference explores the opportunities for green skills and jobs in the UK resources and waste sector and provide an opportunity to discuss and debate how the sector maps and delivers its skills needs for the future.
