Just because you live in a city doesn’t mean you can’t also pursue green career!

This workshop will focus on supporting youth in urban areas, as well as those who are currently living in (or are thinking of moving to) a rural community.

Content and Virtual Experience


Learn about the opportunities and quality of life in rural communities, as well as how to adapt to the new setting. We’ll also discuss Green Job opportunities in the city, like urban forestry!


Learn how to help new employees feel comfortable and safe in rural settings—and how to access potential urban employees!

Virtual Experience

The PLT Canada Green Jobs are for Everyone Workshop Series will be held over four half-days via Zoom Meetings. Registrants will receive their Zoom log-in credentials in advance of the workshop, so be on the lookout for an email from PLTCanada@forests.org.
