Conservation and Community Engagement

'Still taking applications for September'

Missing the UCAS application deadline isn't the end of the world. You can still apply for a Higher Education course and start your studies this September.

It is widely acknowledged in the conservation sector that community engagement is key to the success and resilience of conservation projects.

Published in 2022, the DfE policy paper 'Sustainability and climate change: a strategy for the education and children's services systems' highlights a significant increase in the number of green jobs by 2030, noting that substantial increases in conservation and sustainability learning are key to meeting these targets.

These new programmes, launching for September 2023 will equip graduates with the knowledge and skills to collaborate with local communities and develop successful projects anywhere in the world.
