This research investigated the level of understanding and excitement among young Australians about careers with an environmental focus. The project involved focus groups among secondary school students in seven government and non-government schools in 2008. Dusseldorp Skills Forum hopes the results can assist both industry and educators by allowing them an insight into the minds of Australian youth on the issue of sustainability in the workforce.
