Powys 2017

7th & 8th November 2017
Location: Royal Welsh Showground

We are excited to be running Your Green Future in Powys on the 7th and 8th November 2017; a first for Wales.

During the day, students will take part in a range of interactive workshops where they will complete a series of sustainability challenges, supported by mentors from businesses.

They will also attend a career pathways exhibition where they will find out about the range of sustainable employment opportunities, from engineering to retail, and the training opportunities available to support them in making the most of these opportunities.
