So, you want a Green job?

According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), a green economy will generate 24 million new jobs worldwide over the next decade, offering opportunities for young graduates, business, and governments alike.

The need to tackle climate change has become increasingly apparent and throughout the globe popular support for robust action is increasing. This has resulted in the need and opportunity for new jobs.

Green careers encompass a range of different professions, spanning everything from engineering and transportation, to water and energy conservation.

Green jobs are essential to any climate action roadmap, and this rapidly growing area could unlock further economic opportunities worth billions, driven by the demand for a sustainable future. Pursuing a green career is not only a critical effort, but one that offers a long-term career path which will increasingly be in demand.

In this session, The Prince’s Trust Group, a global network of charities focused on supporting young people into education, employment and enterprise, and One Young World, the global forum for young leaders – partnering with the Department for Education – will give you the insight needed to pursue a green career.

Join us to hear an expert-led panel session made up of senior and young leaders, and attend a hybrid green careers fair where attendees can connect with leading green organisations across various sectors.
