Hello, fellow Sustainability Consultants! It’s been a pleasure being part of your sustainability and communications journey with you. You've reached the very last Task in your work experience - go you!! πŸ™Œ πŸŽ‰

This wrap-up task is going to be a little bit different. With all the skills and knowledge you've accumulated over this work experience, you're ready to take things one step further...

___________________________________________________________________

‍

It’s time to push the boundaries and get creative.Β 

‍

The world, our climate, and technologies are all rapidly evolving. The way we think about and practice sustainability has to evolve too, to make sure our planet is safeguarded for future generations to come.

The Futures Centre, for example, has identified 5 key focus areas for the post-Covid era of sustainability that you might like to draw inspiration from.

‍
You can read more about these factors and access free articles here.

‍

For this gold-level task, you’ll be asked to propose and outline a project that is innovative and future thinking. Think big and think bold.

You’ll then pitch your idea to industry experts.Β 

Every month, Grandshake will host a Future Ideas Spotlight – a feature blog for stand-out pitches that’s all about you, your idea, and your passion.

So let’s get into it! πŸ™Œ

Step 1: Get an idea of the areas that you might like to explore

‍

In this work experience, you've considered two distinct, yet complementary fields - sustainability and communications/marketing. It's up to you which one you want to hone in on – maybe you look up to climate activists like Greta Thunberg who challenge world leaders in the area of climate action, or maybe, you want to propose another campaign that is close your heart.

‍

‍For example, you might be interested in:

  • Sustainable food production
  • Ocean waste and pollution solutions
  • Renewable energy initiatives
  • Access to health in remote communities
  • Cultural heritage preservation initiatives
  • Ethical fashion
  • How new technologies can help us become a more sustainable society.

Want more inspo?Β Here's some more future pathways to sustainability.

Some videos on sustainable farming here, vertical farming here, and even backyard aquaponics (food grown from the wastewater of fish) that you can do yourself here.

You can focus on large-scale solutions – for example, a pitch for government and policy reform – or small-scale solutions on the ground that individuals can implement themselves.

‍

Find your passion in this field and tell us about it.

‍

Of course, we don't expect you to know all the technical aspects of how you would implement your idea!

The goal of this task is to inspire you to think outside the box and dream big, so that one day when you do acquire the technical knowledge, you have the curiosity and creativity to push the envelope and make change happen.
