Join us to connect, share knowledge, and network with other people in the culmination of this transformative series of workshops.
About this event
'To be an agent of change, you need to understand your environment' – Professor Monioluwa Olaniyi, National Open University of Nigeria, Keynote speaker at this event.
Do you want to be an agent of change? Would you like to make work in your institution easier, more inclusive, and appealing to more people? Why not take the opportunity to join this interesting and innovative workshop organised by the Women in Environmental Sciences (WiES) network and the NERC-funded Engaging Environments project.
Beyond data, implementing the ideals of ‘connectivity’ and ‘inclusivity’ is a global challenge, and in all institutions. By recognising lived experiences as an essential source of knowledge, shared perspectives from partners are required if we are to be genuinely interconnected and inclusive.
In this final part of a series of three workshops, we will be showcasing the applied outcomes of the previous two events on Connectivity and Inclusivity (C and I) delivered in 2022. We will:
- review and analyse the C and I pilot study outcomes and, the application of the principles-focused evaluation approach.
- explore the terms "connectivity, inclusivity" and impact from the Global South (i.e., Nigeria, West Africa) perspective.
- host a panellist discussion on the principles and practice of C and I.
- reflect on the barriers to C and I with LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®, as a means to effectively connect and be inclusive.
- enjoy a space to encourage and inspire connectivity advocates and practitioners.
These activities are integral to achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of leaving no one behind, and to promote effective partnership within and between institutions.
Format of delivery: presentations, panel sessions, workshop, networking
