Sheffield College Staff Development Day

Maxine Greaves, MBE, Activities and Operations Manager and Maxwell Ayamba BEM, CEO and founder of Sheffield Environmental Movement  were invited to give a presentation to over 1000 staff members at the Sheffield College staff development day event. This year the focus was on the critical importance of Environmental Sustainability .
Sheffield College intention for the day was to focus on sustainability as they were about to launch their new Environmental Sustainability Action Plan. In July the college focussed on the introduction to sustainability and what they as an organisation are currently doing across all campuses in relation to raising awareness and understanding of environmental sustainability.
The presentation was warmly received with a large number of the participants commenting on the importance of having representation from the African diaspora sharing their knowledge and expertise on the environmental discourse. 
Staff members also welcome the opportunity to have a space to share their thinking, concerns and acknowledged that there was a willingness to engage proactively with the new Plan.
