Green Connections: Early-Career Network. Ongoing volunteer positions - for all volunteers 

We’re interested in starting a network for early-career professionals in the environmental sector to share resources, create connections and learn about new opportunities. The group is open to early-career professionals working in sustainability or persons interested in joining any area of the sector, including environmental education, engineering, consulting, communications, sustainable building, ecology, and beyond!

We would love for members of the group to have a strong involvement in its facilitation, including having a few key volunteers to help organize, spread the word, and help plan the quarterly meetups.

If you’re interested in a volunteer role with this group, please contact grace@greencalgary.org  for more information.
