Tim Jarvis AM, Sustainability Ambassador

Event Overview

Tim Jarvis AM is an environmental scientist, author, adventurer and public speaker committed to finding pragmatic solutions to major environmental issues related to climate change and biodiversity loss.

He uses his polar expeditions and the lessons learned from them to provide insights into resilience, and how these can be applied to delivering climate change outcomes that focus on the challenges and opportunities presented to businesses in the built environment sector by the need for greater sustainability. Tim will also share his observations on the extent of environmental change, what it tells us about humanity's impact on the planet, and how those designing, building and planning our built environments have a role in being part of the solution. 

This briefing is by invitation only to CEDA Trustees. Trustees are senior leaders nominated by CEDA member organisations. At CEDA boardroom briefings Trustees hear from an informed, expert guest speaker in a private, small group setting. Invitations to boardroom briefings are a valued benefit of CEDA membership.
