Dr. Ajantha Perea Addressing the gathering

Dr. Perera shared her experience as an environmentalist and delivered an inspiring speech which made the audience to rethink about the valuable natural resources which are being consumed each day but often been forgotten by humans due to their unsustainable consumption.

She further stressed that humans should take the responsibility of their actions and work to reduce environmental pollution as a matter of urgency.

Her presentation was mainly focused on the theme air pollution, in line with the theme of World Environment Day 2019 – “Beat the Air Pollution”.

It was highlighted that sustainability must be the underlying theme of all the operations carried out in logistics and transport industry as well as the basis for any strategy CILT or WiLAT should adhere to.

After a brief networking session between Dr. Ajantha and the executive committee members, further proceedings of the workshop commenced.

WiLAT Chairperson Gayathri Karunananayke CMILT led the strategic planning workshop.

After conducting a SWOT analysis for the past year, committee members were assigned to the three pillars, Membership Development, Membership Services and Branding and Sponsorship to develop the strategic plan for 2019/2020. The team developed strategies separately after the brainstorming session and this will be implemented during the council tenure.

The workshop was a great success with the participation of 24 Exco members. The finalized strategy and action plans will be tracked at the monthly Exco meeting. Chairperson thanked the Exco for their active participation.
