Our climate system has shifted to a more unstable state than we anticipated by 2022 leading to dangerous conditions across the planet, and our biodiversity is in freefall. This is an awful scenario for today’s teenagers, many of them are struggling with how to deal with this information – denial, despair, or fighting and hope. In order to try and shift them to the latter, this event will show that there ARE adults working on sustainability, and almost ALL future jobs are going to have an aspect of sustainability within them.

Sustainable Futures Energy Workshop
12th July 2022 | 17:00 -18:45
What do you think are the most important energy issues affecting young people, both today and in the future? Sign-up below to take part in an online collaborative workshop and share your ideas, experiences, and visions for the future.
Energy is critical for many aspects of our lives. We need energy to heat our homes, to connect to the internet, and to give us access to water where we live. This is why energy is often called an essential service.
Young people face many urgent issues that the energy sector must address, such as rising energy bills and living costs and tackling climate change. However, young people are underrepresented when it comes to making decisions about energy in Great Britain. We think that must change.
This workshop will be an opportunity to learn more about energy and help shape the agenda of Great Britain’s regulator of this essential service.
