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 will take place on Tuesday 16 April 2024, 2pm - 6:15pm in 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

On the day, students will work on mini sustainability challenges set by organisations, and hear about a range of opportunities open to them.

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
