Environment and sustainability

Do you care about the future of the planet? Are you interested in green issues?

Current concern about climate change, shrinking energy resources and sustainability make geography a very relevant course to study. Often the top media story of the day, the environment is at the heart of local, national and international affairs.

Geographers can contribute to scientific and political debates about the causes, implications and solutions in this area. They have the ability to oversee and manage projects in this area, with a breadth of knowledge and a global perspective.

Some environmental and sustainability jobs, which are popular with geographers are:

  • Environmental campaign organiser
  • Civil servant for DEFRA
  • Conservation worker
  • Environmental health officer
  • Architect or urban planner for sustainable projects
  • Environmental engineer

  • Recycling officer
  • Forestry manager
  • SSSI warden
  • Environmental consultant
  • Environmental impact officer
