The Environmental Placement Programme links students and graduates with organisations across Scotland to undertake an environmental project. The programme provides young people with valuable work experience and an opportunity to develop skills relevant to the environmental sector in Scotland. Participating host organisations benefit from having a knowledgeable and enthusiastic addition to their team to develop their environmental activities.
Colin Beattie MSP has the pleasure of sponsoring the Environmental Placement Programme Awards Ceremony on Monday 12th September 2016 from 1:30pm – 6pm in the Burns Room at the Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh. Registration will take place from 1:30pm - 2:00pm.
This is an opportunity to hear more about the Environmental Placement Programme and a chance to network and support the great work being done to help build a sustainable future. Throughout the afternoon programme participants will present their achievements to a panel of expert judges. The winner will be awarded Most Enterprising Green Student/Graduate 2016. The event will also include presentations by Cycling Scotland and the 2050 Climate Group, networking opportunities, and a tour of the Scottish Parliament.
