Green Career Pathways

The Green Career Pathways event examines and debates the roles of education, training and employment in delivering a resilient and equitable transition to net zero.

Following a keynote presentation on The Role of Education & Skills in UK and Global Climate Action the expert panel will provide insights into Navigating A Green Career Pathway.
