Student Energy’s newest initiative will bring energy to even more of the world’s students and future leaders. Regional Student Energy Summits will occur June 19-20, 2014 simultaneously on 5 continents. The events will each target 100-300 multi-disciplinary postsecondary students from the region
Student Energy is a global not-for-profit that is creating the next generation of energy leaders committed to transitioning the world to a sustainable future.
Africa Student Energy Summit (ASES) is powered by the Student Energy movement and supported by the Green Shift Africa Forum. This is the first time on African soil when a summit that directly targets young African leaders would be addressing energy issues.
The summit would attract about 300 student delegates from different parts of the continent and beyond, professionals and leaders of industry in the energy sector, academia as well as policy makers and political leaders would converge to debate, deliberate and proffer solutions to one of Africa’s most challenging problems.
“More than a century after the light bulb was invented most of the African continent is still in the dark after nightfall. School children often cannot read after dusk, businesses cannot grow, and clinics cannot refrigerate medicine or vaccines, and industries are idled hampering economic growth, jobs, and livelihoods”
ASES 2014 would be partnering with energy industries and institutions of higher learning to realize this objective. Captains of industries, investors, policy makers and politician would play major roles in this summit.
