Acquired skills

The objective of this MOOC is to provide you with an overview of the Ecological Transition professions through testimonials from professionals and an overview of the associated training paths.

Its aim is to gain a better understanding of very heterogeneous fields, the very diverse professions covered by the Ecological Transition and very different training paths to access them with the ambition of helping high school students to find their way through a set of MOOCs, of which this course is part, which is called ProjetSUP.

Climate change, biodiversity, energy, natural resources ... so many urgent challenges to take up! And contrary to what one might think, it is not just the business of a few sectors of activity that are more concerned than others by these issues. All professional sectors and all trades are impacted and have a role to play in the ecological transition. It is even a condition to achieve it!

In this course, you will find expert views, videos from professionals from sectors of activity historically concerned by the ecological transition (eg water, waste, nature protection, energy) but also testimonials from professionals in these sectors. activity strongly impacted (or likely to be) by the ecological transition (eg agriculture, transport, construction).

The Ecological Transition professions are experiencing one of the strongest dynamics in the market. This job creation takes place in fields as varied as construction, transport, the city, the circular economy, education, industry, finance, etc. Also, whatever your course, training paths exist to move towards these meaningful professions! Choosing a profession in the Ecological Transition also means making a commitment!

The content presented in this course is produced by teaching teams from higher education in partnership with Onisep. So you can be sure that the content is reliable, created by experts in the field.
