My sustainability epiphany: How L&D can make a difference

As an individual, it's easy to feel powerless in the face of climate change, gender inequality and the general state of the world. In L&D we have the skills to help our organisations move the dial on sustainability, but we often don’t realise it. This ‘Book’ is my (sometimes, not easy) journey to championing sustainability in our sector and what you can do in your organisations. My experience in sustainability is wide-ranging. I have been championing its inclusion on industry conference agendas, speaking about it, running a 'Green L&D' group, am certified 'Carbon Literate', run a certified B Corp and have been a UN Women UK delegate to the UN Committee on the Status of Women for the last 2 years. I have a deep understanding of behaviour change with a Masters in Organisational Behaviour. I have also spent the past 3 years learning about digital sustainability.
