Please help us to deliver Solihull & Birmingham’s 2017 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 to business 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 Solihull College Conference Centre, on the 1st & 2nd March 2017.
