IAEVG Webinar – Sustainability and career development

28 Oct 2022 10:00, UTC


In the context of increasing concerns internationally about rising inequality and poverty in societies around the world, entrenched gender inequality, economic growth, and environmental issues related to climate change, sustainability has emerged as a beacon of hope and a principle to guide individuals, organisations, industry, and governments in their actions. Sustainability, as presented by the 17 goals (SDGs) of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, is committed to the betterment of people, the planet, and prosperity for all by working in partnership and fostering peace. But what does sustainability mean for career development?

Similar to other disciplines, career development researchers, authors and practitioners are considering the potential contribution of career development to sustainability and the 2030 Agenda. For example, the terms decent work, green guidance, and sustainable careers are increasingly evident in the career development literature.

This presentation considers sustainability in relation to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the implications for career development and its foundational value of social justice. Examples of the application of sustainability and the SDGs in career development will be provided. Consideration will be given to whether career development is ‘fit for purpose’ in the era of sustainability or whether a fundamental reconceptualisation of career development is needed.
