The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) has partnered with ASN Media to produce a news and current affairs programme about the role of water and environmental management professionals in developing solutions to the climate and ecological emergency.
Presented by Tom Heap (BBC News, Countryfile, Panorama), the programme will feature interviews and special reports from across the water and environmental management sector that take a multidisciplinary approach to climate adaptation, mitigation and resilience.
“CIWEM is centrally placed as a multidisciplinary knowledge hub to facilitate many of the solutions to the climate and ecological emergency. As the importance of delivering together increases, so does the need to share successes. This exciting partnership with ASN Media enables CIWEM to ensure these stories reach broarder audiences,” said Terry Fuller, Chief Executive of CIWEM.
With governments around the world declaring climate emergencies, CIWEM is clear that bodies at all levels of society must factor adaptation and resilience into their management and development programmes. CIWEM recognises the necessity for environmental professionals and decision makers to develop greater trust with the communities that bear the brunt of the crisis humankind faces from global overheating, extreme weather events and wildlife loss.
‘Adapting for Tomorrow's Environment’ will highlight the work of leaders and organisations advancing the latest initiatives in climate adaptation whilst maintaining the application of scientific rigour and impartiality. The programme will promote professionalism and technical leadership whilst raising awareness and inspiring the next generation of environmental professionals.
Max Smith, Director, ASN Media said, “As our planet faces unprecedented challenges, there’s never been a more important time to broadcast the important work underway to support a sustainable future. We’re excited to engage with CIWEM and professionals throughout the water and environmental management sector to tell those stories.”
‘Adapting for Tomorrow's Environment’ will launch in December during the Flood and Coast 2020 webinar series (a CIWEM event produced in partnership with the Environment Agency). It will then be promoted through an extensive digital marketing and communications campaign to the wider environmental sector, including CIWEM members and partners, government, industry and academia.
