Women in Sustainability is delighted to be supporting Catalyse Change CIC, a social enterprise helping girls and young women to develop sustainability skills and knowledge for ‘healthy, happy and green’ communities, careers and planet.

The world is facing serious environmental and social problems and empowered women are crucial to sustainability; at the same time, young girls are facing a crisis of confidence at a critical time in their development.

Catalyse Change help young women to identify the change they want to see in the world; and to build their knowledge, skills, resilience, confidence & wellbeing so that they can realise that change.

We believe that supporting young women to realise their voice and agency, is crucial to creating a sustainable society.

We produce inspiring, empowering and skilling programmes and digital content, they include:

  • Catalyst bootcamp: A residential programme providing girls & young women with the inspiration, confidence and skills they need to make a positive difference. For those who are interested in a career in sustainability but aren’t yet sure how to achieve it.
  • Mentoring programme:  Professional women working in sustainability are matched with a young woman to support her on learning and career journey.
  • School & community outreach: Workshops for young people to support their green education and career path – framed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals – as well as bespoke workshops around gender equality and unconscious bias.
