ACLCA is pleased to offer our student volunteer program for this year's ACLCA 2021 Conference. Eligible students will be able to apply to volunteer during the conference and at conference events in exchange for free entry into the ACLCA 2021 Conference.
This complimentary 3-hour short course is specifically designed for undergraduates (or postgraduates new to LCA), to provide an introduction to life-cycle assessment (LCA). In this course you will learn the basics of the LCA method and its application to real-life situations.
Special Panel Discussion LIVE at the Conference: Have you ever wondered how LCA practitioners and sustainability professionals got to where they are? What led them into LCA work and why did they choose their sector or role whether it be in government, manufacturing, education, or as a consultant?
In this session, you'll get to hear from several LCA professionals who are at a variety of stages in their careers and have taken different paths to get there. Each person will start by briefly discussing their career path, highlighting relevant points of interest for students especially, such as important skills they learned, key insights, and the benefits and difficulties of the roles they've had. After this, you'll get time to ask questions of all panelists. This session is relevant to students, those looking to make a career change into LCA/sustainability, or even seasoned practitioners who are interested in learning about others' career paths!
