Dear all

I would like to invite you to the second episode of our NetZeroSurgery webinar series, resulting from the combined efforts of the 2 Sustainability in Surgery teams at the RCSEng and RCSEd.

In honour of Clean Air day, the second webinar will take place on Thursday 16th June 2022, 19:00-20:30, and will focus specifically of changes that can be made to our anaesthetic practices.

We will also host the very first announcement of the TOP 10 research priorities identified by the JLA Greener operation project!

This webinar will be followed by a BIG GREEN ROOM: in the last 30 minutes, the discussion will be opened to the floor and participants will be invited to share the experiences/questions/solutions that they have encountered in an effort to make operating theatres greener.
