career compass

‘Working for a better world’ is not just a slogan. It represents a professional perspective, where personal and collective commitment to sustainability becomes a daily engagement for thousands of young adults all over the world. Through interviews and organisational profiles, you can take inspiration to orient your choice in the working world. This section displays a selection of companies and organisations grouped by sector of activity (environment, arts & communication, social services, humanitarian, sport & leisure, journalism, science & technology, etc.).

cool contacts list a series of very dynamic organisations particularly orientated to collaborating with committed youth. The spotlights are intended to provide a window on all the possible declinations of sustainability in a professional context (a legal office, a sport organisation, a travel agency, etc.). The success stories section hosts interviews with people working towards sustainability. They attest to the value of their professional experience in the field of environment and sustainable development, giving helpful tips to those looking to follow their example.
