The planet needs saving, and you need a job. What is your first step? Eban Goodstein, Director of the Bard Center for Environmental Policy, will discuss getting started in a green career, and discuss the “C2C Strategy” to finding the sustainability work you want, in the town where you want to live. Working in small groups, teams work through the strategy process. Each student will head home with a plan to land a job or summer internship, and lay the foundation for a career saving the planet.
Participants will be introduced to career tracks in sustainability and fundamental skills for career success, including people asking for stuff, visioning, and persuasive communication. In the workshop, working in teams, students will develop a concrete strategy for finding a green job or sustainability internship in both the field and the geographic area where they want to work.
