Young people will hear from a range of professionals working in the nature-based sector. They will learn about the importance of tackling the nature and climate emergency and how to secure a job working with nature.

DYW Context:
Jobs in the nature-based sector make a significant contribution to the Scottish economy amounting to 195,000 jobs or 7.5% of Scotland’s workforce in 2019. Nature-based jobs grew at more than five times the rate of all jobs in Scotland in the period 2015-19 and accounted for one third of all job growth in Scotland in this period.

Significant further growth in nature-based jobs is anticipated on the back of expansion in activities required to meet our net zero targets. Growth in jobs in nature-based sectors such as woodland and peatland restoration between now and 2030 is expected to be significant. This course provides an opportunity to hear from people involved in jobs that help protect and restore nature.
