14 December 2020: COVID-19’s impact on environmental data management
Featuring Dr Kevin Turpin (Jacobs), Nigel Jones (Extrium), Sarah Pyatt (Mott MacDonald) and Dr Andrew Engeli (Department of Health and Social Care)
The pandemic has led to an urgent need to analyse, use and combine different data sets to gain a rapid understanding the spread and impact of the virus, and its impact on a breadth of social and environmental factors. This has created both challenges and opportunities for the way we manage and use environmental data.

14 January 2021:
Innovation and a green economic recovery
Panellists TBC
With an ambitious environmental agenda, and bold aspirations for a green recovery, how can we nurture and support innovation in the environmental business sector to create the 'green jobs' we need? How can the public sector and environmental businesses work together to create the right framework for innovation?

February 2021: Environmental data and the future of planning
Panellists TBC
A data-driven planning system is essential if we are to meet expectations for a simpler planning process that will boost post-pandemic growth and better reflect local community aspirations. What role for environmental data and how can it be integrated holistically into the UK's new Geospatial Strategy?
