1. Professional and Future Facing Global Skills Opportunities
Demand for highly professional and future proof skills is greater now than ever before.

The UK is a hub for Education Technology, so come and learn from industry leads and individual companies about how to deploy education technology effectively and what they think the next 5 years will hold.
3. The Association of Commonwealth Universities
International collaboration for global challenges - translating university expertise into action.
The climate crisis requires urgent and collaborative action to mitigate the drastic decline of our land, oceans and environment. Universities, through their research and expertise, play a vital role in addressing global challenges and can support governments and the industry to deliver climate action and resilience, and help manage sustainable use of scarce resources. University-led partnerships are key to translating research and expertise into action on the pressing global challenge of food security.
Join us to meet Commonwealth leaders, policy-makers and scholars and explore how their work supports the implementation of international frameworks such as the new Commonwealth Living Lands Charter.
4. International Education Strategy and Science, Business and Policy for Environmental Action hosted by the University of Birmingham
Universities are important convenors and collaborators in the drive towards environmental protection and climate action. As a sector our research shapes regional, national and international policies, and our teaching upskills the next generation to tackle the climate crisis. However, action is not instigated in silos. The transfer of knowledge between researchers, policy makers, industry and education is essential to make progress on environmental protection.
Meet the global, national and regional stakeholders that are working together to make important things happen, hear the latest environmental research, innovations and collaborations, and join an important conversation about turning knowledge into action.
