This series of Just Action Talks is offered at a 6th grade level of vocabulary. They are intended for K-12 students and are open to any age. These informational interviews are intended to expose students to the variety of jobs available in the field of sustainability. After the adult describes a normal day at their job, what they love about their job, its challenges, and what it took to get there for about 15 minutes, the dialogue becomes open to Q & A. Chatham students are welcome to attend. Please try to keep vocabulary at a 6th-grade level while asking questions to help make the workshop age inclusive.
