Empowering people in our clean energy future

17th of September 2020 | 16:00 – 17:00

Event Overview

The challenge is too great! How can I and my community have any impact on the changes needed to secure a clean energy future? But policy makers can’t do it alone either! How do we engage and empower citizens and communities to get on board in shaping the clean energy policies and programmes of the future? In this 60 minute conversation, join CEM ministers, leaders from civil society and energy organisations who are leading various clean energy transitions with a common aspiration: to engage and empower individuals and communities to collectively participate in shaping the clean energy future, and to recognise and develop the necessary skills to take advantage of the opportunities to come. This will be a timely and important discussion! Find out how these leaders encourage individuals to take on opportunities to shape their respective clean energy futures; what policy and programmes they implement to promote inclusivity; and what individuals can do to prepare themselves for the transitions. Be inspired as to how the global community can inspire motivate and empower our collective actions towards clean energy future.
