Environment network meets
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.
