The need to address the problems caused by climate change and continued environmental damage have become urgent. Exciting new thinking and practice has started to impact on our approaches to career guidance in response to these issues, but has barely entered the mainstream. 

This seminar was an opportunity to share views about the career guidance sector’s future role in supporting sustainable living and working, the ethical questions this poses and how our understanding of careers may need to change. The topic was chosen by Lyn Barham, a valued NICEC colleague, for her valedictory seminar.

The seminar featured contributions from 

  • Rita Buhl and Miriam Dimsits, former associate professors of VIA University College in Denmark
  • J Clarke from People & Planet 
  • Tristram Hooley from NICEC, with ample time for discussion between participants. 

The seminar was chaired by Anthony Barnes a NICEC Fellow.

A recording of the session is available below along with Tristram Hooley's video contribution and copies of the slides from Rita & Miriam and J Clarke. There is also a document with selected comments from the chat and a list of useful resources and further reading.
