The HSBC Water Programme Roadshow was held in Bristol in February 2016 and I attended with representatives from the Water Programme partners WWF, Earthwatch, WWT & Wateraid. We each had stands to raise awareness of the HSBC Water Programme. The event was held in the canteen at the Redcliff Quay office in Bristol and the footfall through the 3 hours was probably about 75-100 people.
I was able to talk to people about my involvement as a Citizen Science Leader and encouraged people to sign up to receive more information about the training.
Hi everybody! My name is Gianluca and I'm about to graduate in "prevention's techniques" at the University of Siena. Here I met prof. Steven Loiselle who let me know about freshwaterwatch. Together we've decided to achieve a graduation thesis based on the citizens' observatories for environmental monitoring, so I've become the first citizen scientist to takes samples in Italy for freshwaterwatch.
On November 5, I hosted a Diwali celebration event for HSBC's Asian Pacific Islander Committee Employee Resource Group. The event was attended by almost 200 colleagues and guests including our CEO Pat Burke, US COO Vic Severino, US CRO Rhydian Cox, D&I Head Tricia Myers, Americas Regional Head of Private Bank Marlon Young. During the closing remarks for the event, I asked our colleagues to find a cause that they are passionate about and get engaged through HSBC opportunities like our partnership with Earthwatch, the HSBC Water Programme, and the Fresh Water Watch.
