Green Careers Week CDI November 8 SLIDES This inaugural event was supported by prestigious partners from around the UK, including the Royal Society and the Met Office. The goal of the event was to raise awareness among teachers and young people of career opportunities that will result from the emerging technologies that are being driven by the Energy Transition. Young people are passionate about taking action on climate change; surveys suggest that nearly two-thirds of them are ‘worried’ or ‘extremely worried’ about the climate crisis. The conference organizers want to highlight the amazing career pathways they can follow for a sustainable future.
