SEQ | Being an Environmental Professional – Ethical Good Practice in a Professional Context

Join us at a workshop that explores what it is to be an environmental professional. No matter what your speciality, as a professional you will be committed to ethical standards, competence, integrity, the promotion of public good, and accountability to those served and society.

In a workshop setting, we will provide you with the opportunity to

  • Learn about the EIANZ Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct
  • Hone your capacity to identify and resolve ethical considerations
  • Understand the ways in which environmental professionals are accountable to society; and
  • Network with other professionals after an interesting day.

As an EIANZ member or a Certified Environmental Practitioner you have made a commitment to practice in accordance with the EIANZ Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. Attendance at this workshop will contribute towards meeting your professional development obligation.

As an environmental professional, the workshop will showcase the standards to which environmental practitioners should expect to be held accountable by those they serve and society. The workshop will be face to face event, with guided group work, plenty of opportunity for discussion and facilitated by Jon Womersley and Dr Alan Chenoweth.
