creating a platform for the youth to connect with employers in conservation

Just A Few Words

About The Event

The Conservation Careers Fair Kenya will bring together different potential conservation organizations and prominent Kenyan training institutions offering environmental and conservation related study programs. This will create a platform for the youth to connect with employers in the environmental conservation field.

A career in conservation is always associated with a few groups of people in Kenya and Africa as a whole, with few opportunities that the youth may explore. .

The Conservation Career fair will share  the current status of Conservation Careers in Kenya and further share the various  opportunities available in the conservation field.

A Few Words

About The Event Organizer

We aim at creating a community of young professionals in conservation. 

Mainly by building bridges between the actual working environment to the academic platform, and how this translates to a society that has a positive behaviour towards the environment.

Our generation is on the verge where everyone has the ability to spark change no matter how small it may be. There are amazing conservation stories that do not get to see the light of day. These stories are only known among the selected few who already understand the conservation scene.

However, man is a very important part of nature and with no natural resources which we depend, we may not be able to survive. We have coexisted with the environment since the beginning of time and therefore conservation stories are of importance.

Biophilic Conversations will enable the ease of access to such stories and thus inspire people to appreciate the environment we live in.
