HNC has recently welcomed Emily Bamford, a Climate Change Consultant working on behalf of international charity, Unicef, to learn more about how she works with governments and communities across the globe to ensure children have access to safe and clean drinking water.

Students studying A Level Economics explore a wide variety of topics – including how local, national and international economics impact upon communities. Climate change is an issue that affects governments across the world, and Emily’s role at Unicef sees her supporting governments in countries that suffer from extreme droughts and floods, advising them how they can ensure safe drinking water for all despite the challenges faced.

As well as discussing her role, Emily also shared more about her journey from A Levels to working in one of the world’s most recognised organisations, and sharing her top tips and advice for students who are hoping to follow a similar career path. The group enjoyed the opportunity of a insightful Q&A at the end of the session.

Mohammed Asif, Teacher of Economics, comments “It was a pleasure to welcome Emily to HNC to deliver this genuinely fascinating workshop which shared more about her work as a Climate Change Consultant for Unicef. Climate change is undeniably changing the landscape and environment across the globe, and economists and governments are working hard to combat this to ensure we all have access to things such as clean water and food – this is a basic human right. This informative session provided our students with a valuable opportunity to explore the wide range of roles that a qualification in economics can take them – as well as allowing them to discover more about the human element to the economic policies we study in the classroom. Many thanks to Emily for taking time out of her busy schedule to inspire the next generation of professionals!”
