Once every month Energy Transition Center EnTranCe organises the Barn Talk, a public event on the topic of the Dutch energy transition, with prominent guest speakers, often pioneers in sustainability. The Barn Talks are the perfect occasions to learn, share and network with other energy enthusiasts.
To give students of Hanze UAS and University of Groningen a chance to learn from these guest speakers on a personal level, we will, in some occasions, host an Energy Masterclass prior to the Barn Talk. Unlike the Barn Talks, the Energy Masterclasses are presented in English.
During today’s masterclass we will explore the current discourse about the Energy Transition with Harm Edens. Harm is a well-known Dutch TV presenter from i.a. Dit Was Het Nieuws-tv show. But he is also ambassador of WWF for almost 20 years and very much involved in the contemporary discussion about sustainability and circular economy. Harm will help you to further develop your views on the role you can play and the road you can build, towards your own sustainable future.
This masterclass is an opportunity to discuss your own views, concerns and solutions with fellow students in a debate led by Harm Edens, and a will offer you a chance to ask questions about his own ambitions in the energy transition. Make sure to prepare some questions and to think about what you want to learn. We host this masterclass, but you have to create your own opportunities!
Harm Edens presents Dit Was Het Nieuws and BNR Duurzaam on BNR Radio. Currently he is also a storyteller in Gelderse Koppen and does interviews and columns for Broadcast Magazine. He is a popular chairman and speaker for events on sustainability. He has been an ambassador for the World Wildlife Fund since 1999.
It is defined as an Energy Learning Activity for students of the Hanze UAS and the University of Groningen. Students are invited to attend as many Energy Learning Activities as they want, at all stages of their education.
Energy Learning Activities are part of the Energy Academy Europe Certificate. If students follow 10 Energy Learning Activities and also complete 30 ECTS in energy courses at Hanze UAS or the University of Groningen, they are eligible for obtaining the EAE Certificate.
