Find out about sustainable careers


If you are interested in the environment and sustainability, and would like to plan

for a green career, come along to RMIT University’s Open Day on Sunday, 8

August, from 10am to 4pm.


At RMIT’s Sustainability Hub you can find out about a range of programs that focus

on the environment and sustainability – from conservation and land management,

to environmental engineering and environmental science.


You can also check out the Environmental Project in Vietnam, where each year

RMIT students from planning, science and engineering are given the opportunity to

be part of a consultancy that travels to Vietnam to tackle an environmental issue.


The project addresses real world issues, environmental education and teamwork in

one unique, life-changing experience. Students walk away with an international

project under their belt and confidence in project development, management and

reporting.


As well as offering programs that focus on the environment and sustainability,

RMIT is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and providing a safe and green

university.


RMIT is one of Australia’s first fair-trade universities and has close and diverse

links with “green careers” in industry.


RMIT is fostering a “think green” culture within the University community and

beyond. It encourages staff, students and the general public to make changes in

their day-to-day lives, both at work and at home, to minimise their impact on the

environment.


Find out more on Open Day, Sunday, 8 August, 10am to 4pm, at RMIT’s

Sustainability Hub at Kaleide Theatre, which is at RMIT Building 8, Level 2, 360

Swanston Street, Melbourne (enter near the Commonwealth Bank).
