Finding your Green Job
How do you you make money and change the world? That was the question that the folks at DreamNow asked themselves, and it resulted in a book. Occupation: Change the World addresses a conundrum that many people, especially people in their twenties and thirties, face. They want a job that engages their values, but they also want to be able to support themselves, ideally in way that they don't have friends and family constantly asking: "So when are you going to get a real job?"
It seems easy enough to move from volunteer work to low-paying work for non-profits. But for those who hope to raise a family, or simply want to have enough resources to pursue other world changing passions, this is a live issue.
Occupation: Change the World is freely downloadable (licenced CC by-nc-nd), so you can read it yourself. It's a quick flip, well-designed for on-screen reading, and you can probably easily make it through the book in half an hour. At seventy pages, it can only scratch the surface of a deep and complicated subject, however it has plenty of pointers to further reading, and offers some provocative take-aways.
