Green guidance: Why career development needs to pay attention to environmental change

I’ve just given a presentation to the Career Development Association of Australia looking at the issue of green guidance.

In it I argue that climate change and wider environmental issues are becoming increasingly important for our careers. Because of this it is not meaningful to talk to people about their careers without recognising the changing context of environmental change. 

I go on to argue that a critical approach, linked to wider consideration of social justice, provides us with the best framework for considering these issue as part of career management. And that while this is something that we can (and should) address in career counselling, it is career education that provides us with the most powerful opportunity to get individuals thinking about environmental issues.
