Special CIEH webinar: Brexit and the impact on environmental health

On the eve of the EU Referendum, the CIEH is set to host a special webinar to discuss the impacts of staying or leaving on environmental health and the profession.  

Brexit panel webinar

The webinar – ‘Brexit: the big decision’ – is taking place on Thursday 9 June and has been made exclusive for CIEH members.

Tim Everett, the CIEH’s President, will be hosting the webinar and will act as the other moderator. On the day he will be joined by Stewart Petrie MCIEH, Director of Environmental Health for the State of Jersey, and Richard Short MCIEH, Safety Manager for a large international hotel chain.

Both sides of the EU debate will be represented during the webinar with Stewart leading the arguments to stay in the EU, while Richard will put forward the point of view from the leave camp.

Those members who have been lucky enough to bag a place, will have the opportunity to get involved by putting their questions to the panel as well as being able to take part in live polls.

Topics up for debate on the day will focus on environmental health legislation and standards, security and trans-boundary issues, such as air quality.

Andrew Celia is the CIEH’s Digital Marketing Manager and has been leading preparations for the special webinar.

“Webinars are a great resource for hosting important debates and the EU Referendum is certainly a worthy topic,” said Andrew Celia.

“It has been great to see so many of our members sign-up to the listen to the online debate and we want everyone to get actively involved either by asking questions or registering their views via our live polls.”

He added: “At the same time, we would like to remind people that the CIEH is staying neutral in this debate in so far as we are encouraging our members to vote and both panellists deserve to have their viewpoints respected even if you disagree with what they’re saying.”

The webinar will be facilitated online and is audio based. So while there will be no video footage, participants will be able to see images on their screen in the form of a presentation.

If you haven’t been able to get a place the webinar will be available on the CIEH’s usual channels for those who are not able to take part.
