Next Career Option – Environmentalism

Green and the many aspects it presents may be the direction in which we will find fertile grounds for careers and talent shortages.

The many aspects of creating energy, renewable sources of energy, cost-effective and efficient uses, and many other creative dimensions of the Green Movement remind us that resources are limited.  The more we can focus on creating sensible approaches to sustainable energy as ways to bring power to places that are laboring without it.

Kimberly Samaha has brought our attention to The Bordeaux Energy Colloquium whose site features eight videos of projects creating a positive move forward for areas as diverse as China (biomass), Ghana (rural solar power), Peru and Nepal (micro hydropower), Canada (solar heaters),  and South Africa (bio gas).

In order to spur awareness of this initiative, there will be an online competition in two categories:

  • Best case study and technology ($5,000 prize)
  • Best recruiter ($500 prize)

The virtual tradeshow and competition will be on Facebook from May 1 – 7. How do you get directions to the tradeshow? Try the link to Bordeaux Energy Colloquium on Facebook.

  1. Do you see any specific areas of “green” that are more lucrative than others? I’m also wondering about ease of entrance.
