Energy and Youth

The role of youth in the energy transition is increasingly recognized as vital for driving innovation, promoting sustainability, and building resilient and carbon neutral energy systems. Young people bring fresh perspectives and creativity in addressing the challenges of transitioning to clean and renewable energy sources.

Engaging youth in decision-making processes and fostering partnerships between governments, businesses, academia, and civil society are essential for harnessing the potential of young people as catalysts for transformative change in the energy sector. The active participation of youth is critical for accelerating the transition to a more sustainable and resilient eergy future.
