Growing Talent Greener Futures

Co-led and co-funded by employers who share a passion for raising aspirations for young people to find a career in the green sector, Growing Talent Greener Futures is a year-round programme of interactive activities designed to help young people prepare for future working life where green skills will be essential.


Within the UK our different regions are home to green innovation and global clusters of excellence that will generate significant opportunity and growth over the next 10-20 years.

Current projects and those in the pipeline will require an expansion in workforce across many disciplines as well as a raft of evolving and new skills. Whilst this is affecting some industries more than others, businesses across the board are greening and changing the way they work.

Our Growing Talent Greener Futures programme is unique in its design-led, hands-on, and long-term approach, where employers help to co-design the programme to ensure it meets the needs of the future workforce.

This programme is aimed at:

Young people aged 10-18 years old who might not see their place in a career in the green economy


A year-round programme of activities
