We are at the heart of the movement toward sustainable living. This is especially so in employment and employability skills.

By developing new Green Pathways, we are able to transition more people into sustainable employment. Our aim is to increase the knowledge and skills of our volunteers in sustainable green practices. At the same time, we promote a greater understanding of the importance of protecting our planet.

Learning new skills

Through Green Pathways, our learners, trainees and volunteers are given the opportunity to learn new skills in areas like sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, and conservation. This hands-on approach to learning gives our volunteers a deep understanding of the latest techniques and technologies in the green industry. It also allows them to apply their newfound knowledge in practical, real-world situations.

A sustainable future

Green Pathways not only benefits the people working with us, but also helps create a more sustainable future for the whole region. By developing the next generation of green professionals, we are helping to ensure that future generations will have access to the resources and technologies they need to thrive.
