Thursday 25 February 2021 -
15:00 to 16:30

There are many routes to finding work in the green economy. Explore the different paths into environmental work in this webinar where we will hear from UK alumni who have gone on to successful careers in the green industries, as well as information from the University of Exeter on climate change-related courses and the careers such courses can lead to.

This webinar is suitable for prospective international students (undergraduate and postgraduate) considering climate change related/science courses; students already studying at UK higher education institutions and looking ahead to the world of work; graduates of UK higher education institutions who are interested in working in the green industries; and young professionals who are interested in working in the green industries.

It forms part of a global webinar series called Green Careers that the British Council is holding in 2021 in the run up to COP26. The series will explore the different careers that exist within the green sector and some of the routes into them, with a particular focus on the UK's higher education offering in this space.
