Green jobs are decent jobs in any economic sector (e.g., agriculture, industry, services, administration) that contribute to preserving, restoring and enhancing environmental quality.
In March British Council Pakistan hosted a webinar called ‘Paths into green careers - South Asia’ as part of a series that is being held in 2021 exploring pathways to green careers, with a particular focus on the UK's higher education offering in this space. The webinar explored the challenges and opportunities for green careers from a South Asian perspective. There was also information about UK education options and career paths for students who are interested in environment-focused university courses and careers.
Along with the webinar, a number of inspiring stories about UK alumni excelling in green careers all over the world were collected and shared. 11 stories from Pakistan were published on the global website and can be foundhere.
