Join us to learn about Green Careers in the DC region!

Students and learners of all ages are invited to tune in as we talk with environmental professionals to learn about a diverse range of careers connected to the natural world. We’ll discover how each presenter got their start, what it’s like to work in a variety of different careers, and how you can take steps toward your own green career!

These livestreams will take place from May-September, 2023, and will be available as recordings after each live broadcast. So even if you miss one, be sure to check back to watch the recording! Each session will run approximately 30 minutes and be hosted via Zoom. For students, teachers, or attendees looking to learn more about each presenter and some additional green careers, we will provide pre and post-lesson activity packets to help you prepare for each livestream, and to guide your continued learning as you explore green careers around DC!

Come with questions to ask live during the broadcast!

Below is a list of the scheduled livestreams to date (with more to come!), including the date, time, presenter, and location. Also included is a link to register through Zoom ahead of time, information about the presenter.
