This interactive workshop is driven by attendees, who will be able to elect and explore the SDG topics most relevant to them.
Testimonial - Careers in Sustainability
“When it came to helping our students to understand how to prepare themselves for a career in sustainability, Megan & Katy from Change Agents’ presentation was awe-inspiring. Not only did they provide a lot of factual information, they delivered it in an interactive and engaging way, which made it easy to absorb. The structure was clear, motivational and effective. They had obviously put a lot of thought and expertise into the content of their presentation, and because of this our students have taken away a very key message - ‘sustainability starts where you are'.”

The Coaching Programme
How does it work?
You will be paired with a coach who, over a period of 3 months, will use observation, questioning, listening and feedback to create a conversation rich in insight. You will develop a greater clarity and appreciation of your own circumstances and create new ways to approach challenges and achieve goals.
Coaching as a Change Agent
When offered to our Change Agents as part of some of our placements, the coach will initially work with the Change Agent to set development goals that will have an impact on their working environment; with six private coaching sessions (an hour every two weeks) to work towards the goals.
