NICEC Conference 2024: Career and Sustainability


This NICEC conference will focus on career and sustainability.

"We are defining sustainability broadly, as ‘the integration of social equity, economic vitality and environmental health and well-being in order to create thriving healthy, diverse and resilient communities now and in the future."

We will be looking at this topic through three important lenses:

  • skills,
  • wellbeing, and
  • the environment.

Through a mixture of keynotes, plenary panels, workshops and other interactive sessions, participants will be able to contribute, and learn in different ways.

You can attend for one day or two and participate either online or face-to-face. An outline programme is attached below.
