Green Careers is a fast-growing global employment sector, creating a positive impact on the environment and the world we live in. Green jobs and new technologies are being created that will change the world for the better and contribute towards tackling climate change, conserving natural resources and creating sustainable ways of living and working.
In this section, we will promote resources to highlight and inspire young people about the various green career paths and opportunities available. This could be from traditional sectors such as construction and manufacturing, or in new, emerging green sectors such as renewable energy and energy efficiency. As industry works towards a ‘greener’ future for our planet, many people are required to develop new solutions and technologies that will create new roles that didn’t previously exist.
Did you know? A green career can be in any industry, it does not have to scream ‘green.’ Green skills apply to abilities, values, knowledge and technical skills that can all be adapted to support a career within any industry.
