Temple launch Green Week 2016

Temple is launching our very own Green Week, an initiative that will consist of a variety of informative talks, presentations and events, which will take place from Monday 17 October – Friday 21 October. Whilst some of the activity taking place will be internally focused, other events will be open to interested external parties – please see below for which events are internal and which are external. There are plans for the initiative to be entirely externally facing next year.

The focus of the events will be to share our knowledge and expertise on environmental topics with the wider industry and the local community, as well as to ensure that we at Temple are keeping our finger on the pulse in terms of developments within the various sectors in which we work.
