This is an online event.

Joining instructions will be provided after booking.


You are invited to a free webinar that is the first step on a learning journey that will bring you to the first ever approved professional qualification in understanding the management of climate change risk. It answers the question: How can businesses become resilient to our changing climate?

During the webinar we will explore this critical question and provide pragmatic answers. Highlighting how this is addressed through our new courses and qualifications.

Global warming is already changing our climate and will do so for decades to come. The human race must do everything it can to prevent our climate continuing to change so much, so rapidly and for so long. However, the sobering truth is that no matter what we do now, we can no longer ignore the fact that many of the decisions we make today will have to withstand a very different climate.

The risks and opportunities from a changing climate that your organisation faces are unique to you and your organisation. Thankfully, through the immense efforts of thousands of organisations globally, there are many lessons that can now be shared to help your organisation understand how best they can respond, and how best you can support your businesses in that response.
Climate Sense and L&DA have developed the first ever professional qualification dedicated to climate change resilience. As global leaders in the field of adaptation to climate change and delivering outstanding vocational training and accreditation, we are delighted to offer this course to all businesses, of all sizes, and in any sector.

This free webinar will equip participants with a practical understanding of why it is important for your specific business to become adaptive to a changing climate as well as what you can do about it. Focussing upon how your organisation can benefit from engaging with this critical agenda, how you can support your organisation in doing so, and how you can develop your own professional portfolio for future career development.
