Please help us to deliver our first Oxfordshire Your Green Future. Your Green Future is an interactive event which engages school students with a low carbon economy, and their potential role in creating this through their career choices.
Each event sees hundreds of 12 to 18 year olds work alongside businesses. Together they address a series of challenges such as; devising creative solutions for businesses waste issues; designing sustainable retail products; and voting for their favourite sustainable innovation. The Career Pathways Exhibition also gives students the chance to gain advice from businesses and training providers. Business sponsorship will support us to deliver an event at The King’s Centre in Oxford, on the 5th and 6th April 2017.
The event is an excellent opportunity to give back to the community and understand their perception of your company. Jaguar Land Rover
