  2. So you can apply to be a sustainability mentor and get paid.  Contact k.boom@worc.ac.uk

YGF events provide a series of workshops to enable students to develop a greater understanding of a range of sustainability issues and to explore the ways in which sustainability and ‘green issues’ are used by industry and in a range of different businesses to tackle the challenges. At the Worcester ‘Your Green Future’ event professionals will share their passion, knowledge and insight about science, technology, engineering, maths, behaviour change and leadership  and there crucial role in creating a low carbon future. This will give students insight into how these skills are relevant to their future lives and careers. It seeks to inspire them to take on the challenges that, when solved, will make a difference to all of us.

Did you know?

  • The green economy is defined as one in which value and growth are maximised across the whole economy, while natural assets are managed sustainably
    • It is widely acknowledged that the green economy has a huge, long term potential in terms of both environmental stability and financial growth.
    • The transition to a green economy requires a workforce with the right skills. This includes not only skills in the low carbon and environmental goods and services sector, but also those needed to help all businesses use natural resources efficiently and sustainably and to be resilient to climate change.
    • One of the challenges is ensuring there is a workforce with the right skills so that business is in the strongest position possible to take advantage of opportunities in the future.

YGF is an ideal way to raise school students’ awareness of the huge diversity of career opportunities open to them
