New Earthcast Series on Sustainability – Live Webcasts

Beginning on August 19th, 2009, Earthscan will offer a free one-hour webcast on a different topic each month, giving viewers the opportunity to learn from, and interact with, leading authorities from a range of different fields.

The audio presentations will be accompanied by illustrative slides and
viewers will have the opportunity to contribute to discussions by
submitting questions during the events. The subjects covered will
include all of Earthscan’s specialties, including business, climate
change, energy, the built environment and natural resource management.

The first Earthcast, entitled Carbon Markets and Climate Change Mitigation,
will be broadcast on  Wednesday 19th August 2009 at 5pm GMT Summer Time
(9am Pacific Daylight Time, 12pm Eastern Daylight Time) when the
authors of Carbon Markets and Voluntary Carbon Markets will debate the effectiveness of market based mechanisms in helping to mitigate climate change. 

Nicholas Howarth from the Oxford University School of Geography and Environment, Arnaud Brohé from CO2logic, Kate Hamilton from Ecosystem Marketplace and Ricardo Bayon
from EKO Asset Management Partners will be analysing the current state
of carbon markets, discussing possible future trends and fielding your
questions on the issue.

The second Earthcast, entitled Sustainable Business Practice: Process and Implementation, will be broadcast at the end of September 2009. Join the authors of The ISIS Agreement, The Step-by-Step Guide to Sustainability Planning and The Business Guide to Sustainability
for an event that presents different yet complementary methods of
providing sustainability training. It will tackle the issues faced by
organisations attempting to implement sustainable practices, and
explore the practical experiences of consulting firms AXIS Performance
Advisors and The AtKisson Group in an international context.
