Sustainable Futures is a free programme for UK secondary schools and colleges designed to help prepare young people for a future job market shaped by climate change and the transition to a net zero economy.
This free course will equip young people with the knowledge and skills to drive - and thrive in - a future that works for people and the planet, no matter what career path they choose.
We offer a variety of ways to equip you with the necessary tools to inspire the young people in your classroom.
The free certificated CPD training webinars led by our partners Villiers Park Educational Trust will help you to deliver all components of the Sustainable Futures course and support your students to apply sustainable thinking as they consider their post-education journey.
