The 2021 IRENA Youth Forum provides an opportunity for participants to engage in discussions on the deployment of the promotion of an inclusive and just global energy transition. It will serve to strengthen the existing network of young energy leaders with the latest insights from the renewable sector, and connect young people with global thought leaders, government representatives, and IRENA experts in identifying the space that exists for youth to contribute to the deployment of renewable energy and promotion of energy transition in the context of equity and equality.
With the exchange of views centred around the theme ‘Promoting an Inclusive and Just Energy Transition’, the IRENA Youth Forum will host three thematic working groups, to provide interested youth a platform to share their perspectives on achieving an inclusive and just energy transition on the following topics:
1) The role of renewables in addressing key social challenges, including in humanitarian and health sectors;
2) Creating opportunities for youth in the energy transition by addressing challenges related to gender equality, job creation and education;
3) Promoting youth voices and work, such as community engagement, research and advocacy on renewable energy.
The event strives for a global and balanced geographical representation of youth, and highly encourages participation from youth in developing countries, LDCs and SIDS.
