A Green Future Awaits

In 2023 Student Futures ran a Green Internship Project with three LJMU students. Their assignment was to explore the area of Green Careers and Skills in more depth. The project ran over 12 weeks and covered:

  • creation of infographics
  • LinkedIn Learning – analysis of the Global Green Skills Report 2022
  • creation of diverse graduate case studies
  • professional interview with green industry sector leaders
  • blogs on topical sustainability and green area careers
  • creation of a sustainability careers fair guide

Watch the three interns deliver their project at the Student at the Heart Conference 2023, and talk about their experiences of working on a 'green' initiative:
