Throughout May we’re going to be spending some time focussing on all things environment within the Institute of Water as we look at how we support the work of environmental professionals across the water sector.
We’ll be sending our members regular emails to highlight the different levels of professional registrations across the discipline of environment. You’ll also hear from members who have gone through the professional registration process and how they found it – they may even have some tips to help you if you are thinking about doing the same.
You’ll also be hearing from some of our Professional Registration Assessors who will give us a little insight into the process from their point of view, such as what they are looking for from an application. They may even offer some advice if you are currently thinking about pursuing professional registration.
We’ll also have an announcement on our upcoming Environment Conference. So keep your eyes peeled for this one.
Here’s Ian Barker, the Institute of Water’s Vice President Environment, to formally introduce Environment Month:
“When you work in the water sector every month is Environment Month: protecting and improving the environment is central to what we do. But sometimes it helps to have an extra focus on that work, to remind ourselves that having an awareness of how the water industry impacts on – and benefits from – the environment can generate new ideas and better ways of working.
“As our demand for water increases, and as expectations and standards rise for a clean and healthy water environment, the role of environmental professionals becomes more challenging and more interesting. Throughout this month I look forward to sharing with you some of what it means for colleagues fulfilling those roles, and how we can all rise to the challenge of leaving the environment in a better state than we found it.”
