About this event

Come along for the first of three sessions on the role we can all play around Climate Change and working towards Net Zero, as Engineers and individuals, into 2021 and beyond.

We are delighted to have as our host Dr Rebecca Wade – Senior Lecturer in Environmental Science at Abertay University.

This is your chance to ponder the question posed by ICE President Rachel Skinner – What Can You Do? What can you do to address Climate Change and help reach NetZero?
 
In this session, hear about the big COP26 Climate Change conference happening in Scotland in 2021, focus your attention on why we all need to pay attention to Climate change impacts and actions, understand what affect it is having on you and yours, and why you, me and all of us – need to act fast to do something about it.
 
Look out for follow up events on 31 March and 28 April.
 
You can join the event up to 15 minutes before the start time of 12.00
