Interactive workshops to help you become a sustainability changemaker in any profession

Sustainability workshops

Thinking about your next steps? Is sustainability something you care about? Learn more about how to become a sustainability changemaker in any profession with a new series of sustainability careers workshops this April. 

As sustainability is a growing field across many different industries, the Sustainability Team have organised three workshops to help you pursue sustainability no matter what your career aspirations might be. The sessions will provide you with the skills to embrace the future of sustainability in a positive, interactive and inspiring setting.

Workshops will be led by inspiring professionals from different fields, who will join to share their invaluable insights and help you on the sustainability careers journey. To make the workshops as relevant as possible for different disciplines, the sessions will start with a general introduction to the topic followed by theme-specific breakout groups (including healthcare, environment, and arts/entertainment). 

Find our more about the sessions below and sign-up via Eventbrite.

Be a sustainability changemaker in any and every career

Tuesday 12 April 2022, 14.00 – 15.15 (BST)

This session focuses on how to be a sustainability changemaker in all careers. Although most people associate sustainability with ‘green’ and climate-related jobs, sustainability can fit into all sectors of work.

The sessions will focus on how we can engage with sustainability-related topics in different places of work and how to address sustainability wherever you work.

Assessing your future organisation’s commitment to sustainability

Thursday 14 April 2022, 15.00 – 16.15 (BST)

Sustainability is a hot topic right now and many companies are jumping onto the bandwagon, but how do we know if their commitment is genuine and actually achievable?

This session will look at case study examples to determine how companies are working towards their sustainability goals and whether they are on track or just 'greenwashing' (a type of marketing to make the organisation more appealing to those who care about the environment).

This is an excellent skill to have when working with different companies to see how you can ensure that their sustainability agenda is moving in the right direction.  

Build your employability for a sustainability career

Tuesday 26 April 2022, 12.30 – 13.45 (BST)

Are you interested in sustainability but not sure how to tie it to your degree or the sector you want to work in? This session explores how you can highlight existing skill sets learnt from your degree or elsewhere and tie them into sustainability.

The session will consider how different sectors are engaging in sustainability and you can build a sustainability skill set relevant to your own discipline.
