Do you want to increase your environmental knowledge and receive specialist training on sustainability issues and engaging with visitors? If so, here is an exciting opportunity to get involved!
The Jubilee building at Queenswood is being transformed into a new, part time hub which will be an information and educational resource, highlighting global sustainability issues and showcasing local ideas and solutions to the climate and ecological crisis. Themed exhibitions, literature, films and workshops will highlight different areas of sustainable development, sharing information and creating conversations about what we can do locally.

- Engaging visitors in conversation around the issues being highlighted.
- Signposting visitors to local groups / organisations / projects where appropriate.
- Helping out at open days and special events
- A friendly, welcoming person who likes talking to others.
- An enthusiasm for environmental and social issues and the ability to engage in conversation about these without being judgemental.
