I'm also taking an introductory to sustainabiity class through coursera.com given my J Tomkins, PhD, at Univeristy of Illinios. It's wonderful and bringing me up to date on what I think is the most important issue facing all of us today - again - whether all of us know it or not.
In terms of jobs, the field of sustainability is vast covering areas of social justice, employee management, manufacturing, science, government, land, water and air of the world, health, forestry, animal husbandy, agriculture, what we eat, buy, use, philosophy, spirituality, creative connections between and among people in local communities and throughout the world. I mean, it includes everything!
And, because giving attention is relatively new but is a field that is growing with lightning speed, thank goodness, jobs are opening up all the time. And opportunities to create your own job are also present.
