Weston College Supporting Key National Sustainability and Social Action Agendas

On May 12th Weston College will be hosting a Business Breakfast for regional employers and stakeholders, the event will reflect on actions being taken by the College, in response to the Government asking the education sector to bridge the skills gaps in order to progress the key national sustainability and social action agendas.

During the breakfast a number of speakers will illustrate activities relevant to the College, Careers and the Community, and discuss the College’s journey as an employer, as they put strategies in place to work towards Net Zero - adopting the College’s ethos of being green, lean and socially responsible.

Guests will also benefit from a perspective from keynote speaker, Chris Hines MBE Hon.D.Sc. Chris has been working and campaigning for the environment for 30 years and revels in inspiring positive change.

He was a co-founder and then Director of Surfers Against Sewage and then Sustainability Director at the Eden Project and was awarded an MBE for “services to the environment”.

Chris works on strategic planning, communications, leadership and embedding sustainability principles as part of a profitable business and strongly believes that business can be a force for good in a challenging world.

Dr Paul Phillips CBE commented: “Weston College are proud to be playing a key role in this agenda, working in partnership with North Somerset Council and other key organisations, on this important issue of progressing sustainability and social action for the region. This event will enable us to share our direction and work in partnership with our business community to make a difference. The College will also shortly be hosting a Sustainability Conference for its learners to bring together their thoughts and to share a direction for a greener, leaner and more socially responsible future.”
