E.Y.E.’s 1st Virtual EYE Eco-Summit


…to the online launch of E.Y.E.’s 1st Virtual EYE Eco-Summit, on the 2nd July at 10:00.

The social distancing has led to the postponement of the 13th Worthing and Adur Eco-Summit gathering. I know that your participation in the event was booked into your calendar, and that you might take an interest in our virtual event. As always we look forward to your involvement and support with our future events.

EYE have taken the initiative to collate and post a selection of workshops, to keep our keen eco-learners busy. Kindly provided by some of our supporters who were able to do so, in these challenging times we currently find ourselves in.

The 1st Virtual EYE Eco-Summit will be available via YouTube.

Unlike a live event, you could tune in at whatever time you wish, able to revisit multiple times and pause when needed.

Overall the platform takes into account school and EYE safeguarding policies, that our Summit’s commit to.

The link will become live at 10:00 on the 2nd July;  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCykgyPeAoVRcGW8DnYQGA6g/featured?view_as=subscriber

Please find below a running list of the workshop sessions, each will last approx. 20 mins. Before each workshop presentation session there will be an introductory slide so that you are able to identify the workshops, you are keen to see; and revisit workshops whenever its convenient.
