Putting the 'Sustainable' in Major Projects - A Joint World Café Event for IEMA and the Major Projects Association

A shared event for members of IEMA and the Major Project Association exploring the challenge of sustainable projects.

Reaching Net Zero and achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals depends on our ability to work together across households, businesses and governments. This shared IEMA and Major Projects Association event is an opportunity for members from both organisations to do just that and to imagine and discuss exactly how these collaborations might be realised. Using a World Café format, delegates will work in small ZOOM groups to generate a consensus list of actions on three issues:

1. 10 ways to embed sustainability in major project planning and delivery. 

2. 10 ways citizens can drive sustainability.

3. 10 ways professional associations can push the sustainability agenda. 

Over the course of the 90-minute event, you will have the chance to input to each of the questions and to capture your group's chosen 10 ways of sharing a MIRO whiteboard. The Association's wil subsequently use the outputs as the basis for a series of social media posts. The idea is to give a voice to all of the members who take part, offer the opportunity to network with peers in both Association's and enjoy a light-hearted, social learning activity.

IEMA and Association members may both register for this event, using the 'Register Now' button above.
