What do young people really think about the energy industry and its role in achieving a sustainable future? What are their expectations for energy over the next fifty years?
Over 1200 attendees from 108 countries spent three days in Paris from 18-20 November 2009 to discuss the future of the energy industry and their role in it. Nothing unusual in that – except that eighty percent of the attendees were less than 35 years old. This was the next generation, the young professionals and students, who got together for the 2nd WPC Youth Forum under the heading 'Energise Your Future'. Initiated by the World Petroleum Council and its French National Committee, young people were challenged to present their views and to create an international forum for an open exchange between the generations to address the challenges for our future energy.
The young professionals on the programme committee focused on four key areas: sustainability, future energy outlook, ethics and social responsibility and future leadership. Go here to see what they had to say: www.energiseyourfuture.com
