Workshop “Your job orientation in the time of climate change”

In this workshop young people discuss different professions and their respective climate impact in a dialogue-oriented format. The participants' own strengths and interests serve as a basis for identifying relevant job fields or even specific job positions.

What is this workshop about?

According to the European Green Deal, we are striving to be the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. For that to happen, we need solutions for all generations. Especially young people play an important role in taking action against climate change.

The years between 2022 to 2030 are crucial in guiding young people towards a sustainable career path. The workshop helps them identifying job preferences and analysing them in terms of their environmental aspects.
