Green Careers Week webinars in November

Green Careers Week is taking place for the first time from 7th-12th November, and we’ve got some great sessions lined up!

Make Happen are hosting two webinars to showcase the range of job roles and career pathways that relate to sustainability and the environment.

These will take place on:

  • Wednesday 9th November from 9.00 – 9.45am
  • Friday 11th November from 2.00 – 2.45pm

The sessions will last 45 minutes and feature a panel of guest speakers with a range of career backgrounds. Each guest will speak briefly about their job role, their background, and the opportunities in their field or industry – then it will be over to you to ask questions!

How do I access the webinars?

The webinars are accessible online via Zoom, to be streamed into classrooms across the county meaning there’s no need to arrange a school hall or mix students. When you sign-up via the links below, you will receive an email with the details you need to join the webinar.
