The trade fair for jobs and training in the ecological and societal transition

On Wednesday March 6, 2024, the 4th edition of the Talents For The Planet trade show was held at the Parc Floral de Paris.

This event is the first trade show for the general public designed to accelerate the ecological and societal transition, focusing on professions, employment and impact training.

It brings together all stakeholders in the ecological and societal transition, whatever their sector, type of structure or status: start-ups, SMEs, major corporations, associations, public institutions, universities, schools, training organizations... 

High school students, university students, recent graduates, professionals in search of meaning who want to join a company close to its values, to have the keys to accelerate the ecological and societal transition, or who want to retrain, all profiles will find tracks to make their sustainable professional project a reality.

A playful, ecological stand

Greensae is our school's ecological association.It was invited to present its activities at Talents For The Planet.

The association had a stand staffed by its members, raising visitors' awareness of climate issues and offering an interactive game on carbon footprints.

The game, accessible to all, enabled participants to measure the environmental impact of their daily choices. In exchange for their participation, the players with the highest scores had the opportunity to sponsor a reformed hen, thus contributing to one of Greensae's flagship projects.

Saving chickens and reducing waste

The association has undertaken to rebuild the school's henhouse to house cull hens, saved from certain death after 18 months of intensive production. These animals, with their exceptional capacity to recycle organic waste (up to 150 kg per year per hen), are part of a circular economy approach to waste reduction.

Business meetings and opportunities

Beyond raising public awareness, the Talents For The Planet show was also a unique opportunity for Greensae members to meet companies with missions and commitments. These enriching exchanges enabled them to discover inspiring professions and career paths in line with their aspirations and values.

Several members of the association were able to talk to recruiters and apply for internships in line with their convictions. This active search for an internship that combines professional and academic ambitions with environmental values is fully in line with Greensae's dynamic and encourages its members to get involved in meaningful projects.

Greensae association's future projects

Rehabilitating the henhouse is just one of the many actions undertaken by Greensae. The association is also developing other projects, such as the sale of local and organic produce and the creation of a vegetable garden on campus.
