SUSTAINABLE FUTURES FOR STUDENTS
As we face the climate emergency, it's more urgent than ever that we act to place sustainability at the heart of every young person's future. We believe all young people should have access to sustainability learning – developing skills, building
confidence and identifying values so they can create their future, fit for the future.
Sustainable Futures is designed to help students in further education, higher education and recent graduates to understand sustainability in the context of the world today, develop skills for the future and build confidence as they make the transition from education into future-focused work.
“Green jobs will not be niche. We anticipate that sustainability and climate change will touch every career.”

What Students Say
"Students at the University of Leicester had the opportunity to attend a workshop with Change Agents to properly understand sustainability, skills for the future and how to engage with green careers. They were certainly reliable and adaptable, the process felt easy and the students were left in capable hands. Their approach was interactive, inspirational and informative and meant that our students were left with practical skills for how to engage with a Sustainable Future."
