Green Careers: A Path to the Future
September 22, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On Wednesday September 22, join three top speakers from the NGO, startup and digital media worlds to learn about their career paths, current roles, and how you can also forge a career that makes a difference. From helping revolutionize the plant-based meat market, to founding and leading an upstart climate NGO, to becoming a environment-focused digital media influencer, our speakers have been there and done it – and they’ll tell you how.
The event is hosted by Seedlings, the media platform for the climate generation. Our commitment is to a new kind of storytelling that not only informs, but connects us as people and gives us the tools we need to do something positive.
