The environment is the surroundings or conditions that any human, animal or plant lives in. It has a strong connotation to nature. If you have an interest in the environment, you tend to find inspiration and motivation from spending time in nature and have a keen desire to preserve the environment. You wish to nurture it, to make it a better place for all. You could explore careers within science, engineering and problem solving – many environmentally orientated careers incorporate all three, for example marine conservation, recycling systems, or waste management.
