En­vi­ron­ment net­work meets

Te Puke Times - - NEWS -

To­mor­row sees Te Puke host a Women En­vi­ron­ment Net­work BOP get to­gether.

The meet­ing is an op­por­tu­nity for women who are pas­sion­ate about the en­vi­ron­ment, sus­tain­abil­ity and con­ser­va­tion to net­work and pro­vide sup­port for each other.

There are sim­i­lar groups around the world fo­cused on en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues that are of par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est to women and link gen­der, en­vi­ron­ment and health is­sues while pro­vid­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for women in the field to net­work and de­velop sup­port­ive re­la­tion­ships.

This year, a lo­cal branch has been es­tab­lished in the Bay of Plenty by Janie Stevenson and Ta­nia Bram­ley, lo­cal res­i­dents and pas­sion­ate en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists.

WENBOP mem­bers Kazel Cass and Karen Sum­mer­hays will re­port back on the re­cent Women in En­vi­ron­ment, Con­ser­va­tion and Sus­tain­abil­ity Lead­er­ship and Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals Sum­mits they at­tended in Wellington.

Lo­cal WENBOP mem­ber Lisa Eve, who is a waste man­age­ment con­sul­tant, says all women who are in­ter­ested in this field are en­cour­aged to at­tend. She’d par­tic­u­larly like to see women who might be think­ing about study­ing and de­vel­op­ing a ca­reer in the field, and are look­ing for some men­tor­ing or real life sto­ries from the in­dus­try.

The Western Bay event will be held at the Daily Cafe´ in Te Puke to­mor­row at 11am.
