Climate Conscious Careers 2022

Empowering students to take up climate conscious careers.

Newcastle University Students' Union (NUSU) organised Climate Conscious Careers in March 2022, a campaign focused on inspiring students to take up environmentally-focused careers, but also recognise that they can make many different careers climate conscious, and lead climate conscious personal lives as well.

Newcastle University collaborated with NUSU on this campaign, have been collaborating on annual climate campaigns with them for a number of years, and aim to continue this going forwards.
