Getting Gen-Z into retrofit and renewables jobs
This brief report sets out the findings of research on ‘What Gen-Z want from a Green Job’ conducted by the market research agency Savanta on behalf of the MCS Foundation.\and four follow-on focus groups. It explored understandings and perceptions of future career aspirations, environmental awareness, perceptions of ‘green jobs’ and ‘jobs in renewables’, and potential career paths.
A key finding of the research was that despite young people being environmentally aware and concerned about climate change, there was a disconnect between that concern and an awareness that they could have a positive impact on the planet through their work. There was also a general lack of awareness of apprenticeships as a potential training route into the sector.
