In this lesson students get an in-depth look into a global, sustainability-focused organization. A case study provides a situated context for understanding how broad and still-evolving ideas, such as sustainability and sustainability professionals, are becoming more established.

The students continue to research a field of interest including setting up and conducing an informational interview. This experience will help students make connections and gain confidence that will be valuable to them as they prepare for their own personal career journey.

Students will conclude by creating an action plan to meet their green career goals.
