Green Careers Week


Launching for 2022

ECCI and the University of Edinburgh are primary partners for Green Careers Week - an exciting virtual careers fair that aims to inspire young people to discover careers, jobs, roles, and career pathways that are green careers and to develop green skills.

Timed to coincide with COP27 and running in schools, colleges and education centres across the UK from 7-12 November, the initiate aims to raise aspiration, support diversity, challenge stereotypes, and promote real opportunities for young people to have a career that will genuinely make a difference.

With a website packed full of activity resources, case studies, webinars, videos, events, and employment information, Green Careers Week offers an insight into and exploration of the current and future careers which will help the planet move towards net zero with reduced impact on the environment in all areas of society.

ECCI and the University of Edinburgh have joined with core partners - including UK Space Agency, STEM Learning, Environment Agency, Met Office, Natural History Museum and WWF - to challenge young people and educators to find out more and continue to embed green careers awareness in the classroom in the coming weeks and months.

As part of the programme, ECCI's Head of Climate Partnerships Jamie Brogan will be sharing his career journey and aiming to inspire 1000+ children to become future climate leaders at the Positive Footprints Career Conversations event on Wednesday 9 November.
