I just came across this great article that profiles four kinds of careers that focus on helping the environment. If youâ€™ve got a young friend or a teenage daughter or son who is interested in working to protect the environment, these real-life examples of practical environmentalists may get them interested in one of these professions.
The article looks at Bern Johnson, the executive director of Environmental Law Alliance Worldwide (E-LAW), Tim Maze, an environmental educator, Galen Burrell, a sustainable design engineer, and Giorgio Zoia, who works for the gas, power, and renewables division of BP, an energy company. The article proves that you can have a satisfying (and well paying!) career helping the environment.
