Event Details

We are in a changed climate. What does this mean for the future of work? What if I work in technology, planning, communications or health? Will our changing climate impact what my job looks like?

Join us to uncover the connections between climate change and jobs in fields that we usually do not think as being impacted by the global climate crisis. It is clear that climate adaptation and mitigation is intrinsic to the development of the workforce this event explores sustainability in fields that aren't directly associated with the environment.

Three emerging professionals will reflect on how climate change is currently impacting their respective fields and how it shapes their future. The short presentations will be followed by small-group dialogues where participants will have the opportunity to network with the speakers and reflect on how climate change will be an integral part of any discipline in which they choose to start their career.
