Consider a career move

Today universities offer many courses in environmental fields -  from policy to education to business administration. If your job is at odds with your concerns, consider moving in a different direction. You might not have to reinvent the wheel: You can offer your current skills to businesses who are trying to be greener - they all need consultants, marketing professionals, lawyers, accountants, assistants and so on.

Think about working in an environmental field, whether it be business, consultancy, conservation or recycling. Green business is one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy and demand for green products, renewable energy and new technology is only going to grow as resources become more scarce.
