Green Jobs: Adapting to our Changing Climate
LSF’s Green Jobs: Adapting to our Changing Climate video series supports Canadian students in preparing for the 21st century workforce.
Today’s youth are looking ahead towards a climate-altered future, where impacts are felt throughout Canada’s environment, communities, health, economy, and more.
Whether working to mitigate climate change or adapt to its impacts, jobs requiring knowledge and skills to address climate change will be ever more important.
This series of 10 videos introduces students to various Canadian experts who build climate resilience through their work. Each video is hosted by high school students from across Canada.
As part of your careers studies courses, sustainability and climate change courses or club activities, share these videos with your students to inspire them to think about green jobs!
“How can youth—the workforce of tomorrow—pursue jobs that make our communities more resilient to a changing climate?”
– Annette Morand, Science Planning Officer, Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Division, Natural Resources Canada, Government of Canada
Supported by Natural Resources Canada’s Building Regional Adaptation Capacity and Expertise (BRACE) Program
