As we approach COP26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference, we’re excited to share some opportunities for your organisation to make a difference on environment and energy across Birmingham City.

The Green Economy

Come to our FREE Employment and Skills webinar on the Green Economy on Wednesday 27th October 2021, 1pm – 2pm, where you’ll be able to hear from Phil Beardmore, a well- known and respected consultant in the Energy, Sustainability and Environmental agenda; find out about the Future Parks Accelerator project and the training  delivered by Birmingham Adult Education Service to develop skills in the Green Economy.

A new Environment and Energy Network

We are also launching a new Environment and Energy Network for Birmingham’s VCFSE (Voluntary, Community, Faith and Social Enterprise) sector, and we’d like to invite you to take part!

The first meeting will take place online on Tuesday 2 November 2021, 10 – 11.30am. RSVP to [email protected] and we’ll send you the link.

Membership of the network is FREE and will be facilitated by BVSC. The Network will meet online for 1.5 hours at least once a month – future dates to be arranged. If you can’t make the first meeting, we’d still love for you to be involved!
