Climate of Work: How does Climate Change Affect the Future of Work?


We are in a changed climate. What does this mean for the future of work? What if I work in technology, planning, communications or health? Will our changing climate impact what my job looks like?

Join us to uncover the connections between climate change and jobs in fields that we usually do not think as being impacted by the global climate crisis. It is clear that climate adaptation and mitigation is intrinsic to the development of the workforce. This event explores sustainability in fields that aren't directly associated with the environment.

Light snacks will be provided.
