!!This masterclass is a student-only event!!

During this masterclass we will explore capacity building in energy transitions in various countries and at various scales, addressing issues that pertain to the household level, sectoral level and high-level policymaking.

As the renewable energy sector experiences major transitions, it is vital that the industry invests in strategic and skilled human capital to continue on the path to meeting its future energy goals. It takes skills, knowledge and intangible human assets to ensure access to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy for all. This human capital agenda relates to capacity within a much broader ecosystem than we often think of.

We need: politicians, civil servants, trade unionists, community activists, government officials, judges, writers, journalists, architects, designers, engineers, scientists, artists, entrepreneurs, bankers, investors, board members and business leaders of small, mid and large companies,

to acknowledge, understand and act upon the energy transitions that we face! Will you be one of them?
