I’m just wondering if you know anyone who might be interested in being involved in one of my current projects?
My friend Carloine is project managing an exciting new collaboration between Eden Project and Enterprise UK. The project is a ‘green’ careers resource for young people, www.realcoolfutures.com, at the heart of which lies an interactive database of inspirational case studies.
Many young people are concerned about our impact on the climate and the environment, but can’t see what society is doing about it or what they could do to make a change. Eden has launched Real Cool Futures to inspire young people with the variety of job roles out there adapting to challenges of the 21st century, as well as the varying routes into those jobs. Together, the case studies on the website create a much bigger picture; young people will be able to connect what they’re doing at school to the ways they could make a living in the future – and make a positive impact on our planet. It will also act as a platform to showcase companies at the forefront of the growing environmental and low carbon job sector.
We are still looking for more individuals to join the site as job/career case studies. For someone to become part of the site, we just need them to complete the attached questionnaire and return it (with a photo) to the email address shown on the questionnaire itself. We will be featuring individuals with no qualifications right through to those with PhDs in their field, as long as they are making a positive impact on climate change and sustainability. There are no right answers to the questions, the more varied the case studies, their backgrounds and career routes the better! We will also be filming a percentage of the case studies to create a series of short videos to accompany the written content on the site.
Please email your completed form and photos to Caroline Bosher (firstname.lastname@example.org) by close of business on 12th March 2010.
I would be very grateful if you could forward this request to anyone else you think might be interested in taking part.
You can also get involved by becoming a fan of the Real Cool Futures Facebook group.
I really appreciate you taking part – here’s to helping change the world!
