L2S1 - L&D and Sustainability

Thursday 18 April 2024
Conference Theatre 4

This requires substantial organisation-wide change. If only there was a team available who were skilled in the combined arts of engagement, learning and behaviour change who could help…

Explore L&D’s part in the sustainability journey and how to play it

L&D already have many of the skills needed to bring about large-scale change within their organisations, but are they recognised as such? The answer, in many cases, is no. There are historical reasons for this, baggage and indeed blockers stopping L&D being a more active participant in sustainability initiatives. But there are ways to prevail and be the change that you want to see.

In this panel discussion, we engage with three L&D professionals who have been instrumental in numerous sustainability initiatives within their organisations. Together we'll uncover practical insights into how they have helped their organisations transition to become more sustainable, how they ditched the baggage and overcame the blockers.

  • Inspiring sustainability initiatives L&D have been a critical part of 
  • What role L&D can and should play in organisational sustainability
  • What is stopping L&D and how to overcome those blockers
  • Small easy first steps L&D professionals can take tomorrow
  • Opportunity to ask questions and contribute to the discussion
