Show Notes

What is a green job? 
Will we all transition to a green job?
Why 50% of jobs will be impacted in some measure by climate change? 
What are the reasons that make green jobs great opportunities for the new generations? 
What are some tips and tricks to successfully transition to a green job? 


Joseph Gelfer, career changer and Founder of Ecotopian Careers - a company helping people during their career transition to green jobs - is the latest guest of The Career Changers. 

“Like many others, I spent years trying to figure out what I can do to be part of the solution to climate change. I made changes to my lifestyle such as being vegetarian, recycling and living very modestly. But what I really wanted to do was to make climate change the focus of my working week.
 
However, I realized that it’s hard to make significant professional changes in mid-career. There are many obstacles that make such changes difficult: some of these are to do with individual circumstances, and others with social expectations and prejudices”.
