Your Green Future contributes to bridging the green skills gap, helps address youth unemployment and ensure a sustainable and competitive low carbon economy. It is a unique interface for business, universities and schools and their students; providing discussions and learning opportunities that are mutually inspiring and informative.
Young people found an appreciation that jobs within a greening economy have a dual challenge: to make economic growth and development compatible with climate stabilisation and a sustainable environmental footprint. Furthermore, they discovered that 'green skills' are not only needed in the 'eco industry' itself but that practically all jobs will need to develop sustainability knowledge and skills.
