The WINS Network has arrived in Aberdeen!
After a superb launch of the WINS Aberdeen Hub last year, we are delighted to see the Women in Sustainability Network getting established with Lola Okunrinboye, our WINS Aberdeen Lead (details below), and her fabulous group of volunteers. Due to Covid19 restrictions, Lola is now running an excellent series of online events for both local ‘women in sustainability’ and those further afield. Keep an eye on this page for new WINs Aberdeen led events!
(And if you’d like to help in anyway, volunteer support or join the mailing list for early notification of future events do get in touch with the wonderful Lola Okunrinboye, our WINS Aberdeen Lead (details below).
WINS Aberdeen’s next Hub event is on 4th March exploring the topic of Circular Economy. More details to follow soon!
