STEM Learning, in partnership with AECOM, are excited to invite teachers and students to attend their virtual careers fair between 1st and 12th November 2021 to coincide with COP26.
Careers in Climate Change will serve to inspire and inform; supporting students to be better prepared for future careers. By developing this resilience in young people, we believe we’ll be in a better position to continue to develop the green economy across the UK.
So, whilst world leaders are debating key climate change issues in Glasgow, young people from across the UK can virtually explore the work of companies and researchers who are working towards mitigating and adapting to the challenge of climate change.
Hear from companies, such as SSE, GE and the National Grid, on how they’re looking to lead the way on issues relating to energy and power, or from WWF who are launching ‘Sustainable Futures’ where young people can be supported to pursue a ‘sustainable career’ even outside typical ‘green jobs’. Stands will also cover cutting edge climate change research being undertaken right now and how young people can ‘Be part of the solution’ with the Environment Agency.
Aimed at 13–18-year-olds, this virtual careers fair will also include the opportunity to chat live with DBS or PVG checked volunteers from the organisations hosting stands. A similar event organised by STEM Learning took place in March this year and was a great success with over 270,000 attendees and more than 1,170 schools signing up to take part.
