finding jobs for people who understand sustainability

Elize Hattingh is a graduate from the BPhil programme and is doing her Mphil thesis on career paths for people with qualifications in the sustainability field (supervised by Mark Swilling). She is conducting research on where graduates from the Master's Programme in Sustainable Development have landed up. She has set up a business called Green Talent.

Green Talent visited the Sustainability Institute during June this year to get to know the students of the BPhil programme a little better. Some of the most talented sustainability professionals discussed their skills set and she learned about their passion for sustainable development. Have a look at the following videos: http://www.greentalent.co.za/about/; http://www.greentalent.co.za/2011/03/video-interview-stanley-nyanyirai/

Green Talent is hopeful that a skilled workforce that understands sustainability will be "the custodians for Africa`s natural capital and will help to steer the green economy!" For more information visit:
