Training and capacity building

Sustainability is a fast moving field and businesses operating across the built environment sector need to make sure their employees have the right expertise and skills to keep apace and drive change. There is also often a gap between a corporate vision and actual implementation. This frequently comes down to the culture of the organisation and the capability and commitment of the people involved in delivery – from the organisation’s leadership team to practitioners on the ground.

Our approach is unique. We work with our sister company, education consultants Think Up, to develop effective training formats and engaging training materials. Collectively we adopt a highly visual approach to deliver exceptional quality technical content and training design, based on theory and proven practice.

We offer:

  • In-house sustainability CPD and training sessions
  • Leadership engagement programmes
  • Conference and event presentations
  • Conference debate facilitation

We work with our clients to develop bespoke topics and content. A flavour of our past training topics is listed below:

  • Creating sustainable communities – sustainability as a catalyst for regeneration
  • Implementing sustainable developments in practice
  • Sustainability as a driver for innovation and growth
  • Sustainability trends and what it means for your organisation
