    I recently discovered the path I want to go down. I am passionate about the environment in a very broad sense. I want to protect our environment and prevent the destruction we are causing. I am also interested in conservation as well as sustainability, environmental design and finding a clean energy source that can completely replace fossil fuels and other sources we currently use.

    I have tried finding the right way to join the field in a general sense but that which will also allow me to make the biggest difference and do everything I want to do but I have not come across much helpful information. Naturally it led to degrees in environmental science, environmental and resource management, environmental engineering, ecology and conservation and marine biology etc though I don't know which route would be best.

    All help or advice is much appreciated, thanks.

    Only you can work out what it is you have and what you can do with it? You don't need an environmental qualification if you can bring your skills to that area. I know a lot of engineers of all persuasions who do great work in sustainability. I know a lot of architects who are trying to build sustainable houses.
    You need to try and narrow it down, or get a very broad qualification. I don't know how much time you have before making decisions, but there are lots of things you can volunteer in to try a few things out and talk to other people with similar views. Have a search on line for local groups or classes and courses, for example:
    might give you some food for thought.
