what are the possibilites of getting a “true” green job in the western cape?
I would like to work anywhere in the garden route area or CT. With regards to what kind of work.I was looking at EIA work,sustainable development,renewable energy,organic farming.Working for a consulting agency or as a environmental inspector.I have a diploma from the USA in environmental science and im busy doing my business management degree-correspondence.Ive also worked in the USA as a operations manager for a company that builds, renovates and maintains golf courses.I was always looking at ways of implementing environmentally-friendly ideas like IPM and certifying golf courses by Audubon and working with the US department of environmental protection.
I do my best by living a ‘green‘ lifestyle here but i got to say that its not as easy as the US. I used to shop at a store called Whole Foods in the US where most of their products where organic and fair trade…. Here in PE (most of SA) i find most of the products here are sold by the ‘cruel and corrupt’ multi national corporations
Check this company out man. Its a brand new revolutionary company thats going to get solar on as many homes as possible in here in the United States. Http://www.powur.com/therisingsun
Legalities surrounding green consultant business for a minor?
I am a 16 year old who has held prominent internships in the green field, and would like to start my own consulting “business”. I have experience working with large companies, having interned working on a green initiative, compiling a detailed report containing recommendations for short term and long term environmental goals for the company. (I would be most specific, however to protect my own identity as well as the identity of the aforementioned companies, I cannot do so.)
To my questions:
Is there an age limitation in MA for starting one’s own business?
Is this even a feasible plan?
I would appreciate mature, professional responces. Thanks!
Sounds like you are ready to become an ecopreneur. You should look at our company, www.GreenIrene.com and www.BeAGreenIrene.com for information about becoming an eco-consultant. The key, however, is that you must be over the age of 18 to enter into a contract, so you would have to have a parent or guardian enter into the contract and you could work with them as a team. Green Irene provides all the necessary pieces to help you launch your own local eco-consulting practice in your community – training, research, national marketing, marketing materials and initiavtives, local public relations, your own website, credit card processing, products and order fulfillment. Please email me at email@example.com and I can send you further details. I hope to hear from you.
