Learning social responsibility: Environmental taster day

Environmental taster day posterEnTRESS (Environmental Technologies & Resource Efficiency Support Service)

is holding a free environmental taster day in collaboration with Birmingham & Black Country Wildlife Trust.

The environmental taster day is taking place on Tuesday 29 November from 9am – 4.30pm at Somers Sports and Social Club in Halesowen.

The idea behind the event is to offer small and medium sized enterprises in the Black Country the opportunity to attend a corporate social responsibility day for free. 

During the day businesses will gain practical experience at an active habitat creation project in Seth Somers Park, whilst gaining knowledge about how they can improve their own sites, the wider environment and feed into the natural capital agenda as well.

Eligible SMEs will also receive fully funded support from the EnTRESS project with the adoption of environmental technologies and resource efficiency processes for the reuse, recycling and recovery of materials and resources.

The agenda for the environmental taster day event is:

  • 9am – Registration, networking, refreshments
  • 9.30am – Welcome and introductions
  • 9.40am – Introduction to EnTRESS and CSR
  • 9.50am – The importance of urban habitat management
