Join Guest Speaker, Liz Parkes as she leads our November Roundtable discussion: “How can everyone prepare for the impacts of climate change?”

About Liz Parkes

Liz leads the Environment Agency’s thinking on climate change. She works closely with a range of Government departments on both preventing and responding to the climate emergency, and brings a focus on how people are at the heart of that thinking.  She combines extensive regulatory experience with the ability to think creatively and strategically about the future and to engage others in that journey.

Previously, Liz was Head of Waste and Resources at the Environment Agency and prior to that she worked in local government and for the Tidy Britain Group.

We are experiencing the impacts of climate change now. The potential impact of climate change on lives, livelihoods and lifestyles is dramatic. Some say we only have 10 years to achieve an economic and social transformation. Are people prepared? Are communities and cities?

In the lead up to COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference, what more can we do to show the potential impact on the things we value most in life – on our homes, our towns, our food, our water, our coasts? Is there something we can learn from the pandemic on the role of place and the importance of the connections between people, nature and the economy?

About Corporate Culture Group Roundtables

The aim is to bring together a small number of people who would welcome an open discussion about the subject based on their insight and knowledge. Each is hosted by a leading thinker in culture change, sustainable business or stakeholder engagement, who will share their views and experience before opening the discussion up to the room. All sessions observe Chatham House Rules – so everyone can speak openly and honestly.
