What is the Climate Careers Zone?

Inspired by the goals of COP26, RPS’ Climate Careers Zone is a virtual learning experience that brings the future of our towns and cities to life.

Aimed at 12-16-year-olds who feel they are facing an uncertain future, the zone explores how the built environment will need to adapt and respond to climate change, as well as showcasing some of the skillsets and professions needed to help us achieve the COP26 goals.

To inspire students on a learning path for a career that can make a difference, RPS consultants - including engineers, architects and environmental specialists - have shared their knowledge, personal experiences and advice.


Three unique areas to explore:

  • In the mini city students can navigate through 13 different neighbourhoods to explore sustainable solutions for how we design, build, power and manage our built environment in the future. 
  • In the careers zone amphitheatre students can learn about some of the careers that will play a major role on the path to net zero carbon – hearing from RPS colleagues who have shared their experiences, insight and advice.
  • The exhibition hall shares tips on how students can make a difference in their everyday lives and includes the opportunity to complete their own climate pledge.
