Hey everyone, I wanted to create a post where we share the types of jobs there are in Sustainability and the ways to find such jobs. I know it's not easy to define a sustainable job but let's try not to get too critical with other people's definition of sustainability.
Here are a few sustainability career options that I've found exciting:
Sustainability Consulting - you can start as a freelancer and reach out to corporations of all sizes to offer your services, and how you can help them improve their operations.
Teaching - you can pass on your knowledge to other people by teaching at a local schools/colleges or you can create an online course using Udemy to educate people who are new to the subject.
Podcasting - you can start a podcast on green living where you share your experiences with listeners. I've learned that listeners develop a deep relationship with podcasters so this a good way to develop a passionate following.
Local Gardening Project - you can run a food growing project if you live somewhere rural or urban with open public spaces where you can work with the local government to grow vegetables that can be sold or donated to local businesses.
E-commerce - this is an obvious one but how about trying something a little different. You can run an e-commerce business that also lengthens the life of clothes and household items by repairing them.
Event Management - you can organize people's special events at vegan restaurants and help your clients make sustainable party options.
