There are many ways in which you can make a meaningful difference to the wider world, from working directly with people to improve their health, developing new products/techniques which make a difference or for a public sector organisation, to create policies which govern scientific research and its applications.
Tackling global warming involves a wide range of jobs linked with science and policy making. Science and Health Week is designed to help you explore your options in this field of work. Throughout the week you have opportunities to meet a range of professionals who can give you insights on what kinds of job roles are available, where to look for opportunities, and how to give yourself the best chance of securing a role.
