Asides

A new era of conservation 

It’s been 10 months since we left our urban lives and I’ve been researching a lot these last weeks to work out how to use my skill sets and do work that is ethical or sustainable and helping create a better world.

I’ve been looking at career advice websites, self-help youtube videos and reading articles on technology, engineering, sustainability, conservation and wildlife. It’s been difficult to find something that excited me or looked like it fit. I even went hunting through think tanks which looks like a lot of research academics and politics, which are important parts to achieve the goals I want to achieve, but I’m realistic… working on that really isn’t my forte nor will I last long.
My next steps have been on doing those online free courses to see what strikes my fancy. I tried to download one on psychology but it ended up in Chinese or fully online and as much as I love the Internet,  I really despise programmes that mean I have to have a reliable internet connection. It’s so presumptuous!

So I found a few on mobile apps, digital marketing and bbusiness analysis which are exciting new aspects for me to learn and complement my business development understanding as it is.

Just now I have found a great article and it’s exactly along the lines of what I’ve been thinking and inspired me in the right way!

What the conservation industry needs right now is innovation and Gautam Shah’s article hits the nail on the head.

Stay tuned and I’m going to ponder this one a little longer!
