Your opportunity to find out about green jobs, hear from inspirational speakers and take part in a mini sustainability challenge.

What to expect

Green Futures took place on Monday 27 March 2023, 9.45am–4.30pm, in Woodland 2/3, The Student Centre.

Green Futures is an exciting new event that will provide you with:

  • a better understanding of the green jobs market, including what a ‘green’ job is and where to find one
  • increased confidence and understanding of the value you can bring, whatever your skillset, experience, or academic discipline
  • an opportunity to gain real-world experience.

On the day, students will work on mini sustainability challenges set by organisations, and hear about a new sustainability internship programme being launched exclusively to Sussex students.

You will hear talks from:

  • employers from a range of industries, representing job market areas where there is green job growth. This includes sustainable energy, public policy, consultancy, tourism, finance, transport, not-for-profits and land, marine and buildings management
  • recent Sussex graduates who are now working in green jobs
  • a high-profile special guest and keynote.

How to attend

Places are limited and will be allocated based on:
