Ahead of the first delivery of the new Level 5 Certificate in the Management of Adaptation to Climate Change, the first-ever approved professional qualification in this subject, Climate Sense and Learning & Development Associates (L&DA) have announced a free-to-attend taster webinar.

An Adaptation to Climate Change taster webinar from Climate Sense and L&DA on 30 September will explore and provide pragmatic answers to the critical question: How can businesses become resilient to our changing climate?

The free-to-attend taster webinar will provide informative insight into the learning content of the new Level 5 Certificate in the Management of Adaptation to Climate Change developed by the two training experts, which is the first-ever professional qualification available in this subject and will host its very first iteration on 19 October 2021.

The risks and opportunities from a changing climate are unique to each organisation, but through the immense efforts of thousands of organisations globally, there are many lessons that can now be shared to help organisations understand how best to respond, and how best they can support their businesses in that response.

In a 1-hour taster webinar, Climate Sense and L&DA will equip participants with a practical understanding of why it is important for their specific business to become adaptive to a changing climate, as well as what they can do about it. Focussing upon how each organisation can benefit from engaging with this critical agenda, how they can support their organisation in doing so, and how individuals can develop their own professional portfolio for future career development.

Topics covered:

  • Why must we become adaptive to a changing climate?
  • What must we adapt to?
  • What are the things we need to pay attention to?
  • How can we become adaptive?
