Explore the agenda for the final SECLI-FIRM project Stakeholder Workshop

We are excited to be delivering our final Stakeholder Workshop on Tuesday 25 May 2021 and to welcome a line-up of presenters from across industry and climate services. We have ensured ample opportunities for participation from attendees too.

We understand the constraints on stakeholder’s time so we are offering three sessions, and we hope participants will join all three where possible, but they are welcome to join just the one or two that are most beneficial to them. We aim to attract  decision-makers from the energy, water, oil and gas, insurance and agriculture sectors, users and providers of climate services and all those interested in our project findings and progress.
