Business Ethics – Resetting on Sustainability, Climate Crisis and Biodiversity: Birmingham workplace engagement with global challenges


Date and Time

Mon 11 May

  • May 11, 2020
    1:00 pm - 2:00 pm




There’s been a breath-taking scale and speed of global change in recent weeks and months, with the Covid-19 pandemic. What a clear challenge to the received wisdom that “democracies are incapable of making big moves like this quickly, or at all”.  Crises shape history and provide heightened opportunities for a “reset”, as we focus on what we fear and what we value.  How can we harness this time of change to bring about a reset of our path forwards on sustainability, climate crisis and biodiversity?

Jenny Cooke is a Senior Project Engineer at Network Rail and a member of the ChaplaincyPlus network.  Her Christian faith means that she continually asks herself at work, “What’s the right thing to do?” And her work requires her to engage with sustainability, climate crisis and biodiversity. Jenny is passionate bout integrating sustainability into working life.  When she had responsibility for drainage on the railways, her work made her aware of the increasing severity of flooding.    Jenny will share her experiences of engaging with the bigger picture of sustainability, climate crisis and biodiversity at work – and she’ll encourage us all to focus on how these issues impact our own work.  How does her Christian faith inform Jenny’s engagement? And how can we engage in conversation and action on these global issues in our Birmingham workplaces, working with the opportunities that are emerging in this season of change to flatten the carbon emissions and temperature curve which threaten millions of deaths each year?
