PUBLIC REQUESTS

LECTURES

Would you like to set up a recycling project at your school or office? Do you need information on environmentally sensitive areas and species? Or maybe you would like to find out about the impacts that climate change has on human health and the environment?

If you need to know about these and other environmental issues, our Environmental Education Officers are always ready to deliver lectures and presentations to members of the public. They visit schools and tertiary institutions, businesses, community groups, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Faith-Based Organisations (FBOs) and any other civil society groups that need information and guidance. More recently, they provide virtual sessions to online audiences
