We empower young people to accelerate the sustainable energy transition through our four core programs:
- Chapters: We currently have 40+ global, student-led Student Energy Chapters hosted at post-secondary institutions.
- Energy System Map: Our digital Energy System Map has reached over 3 million users.
- International Student Energy Summit (SES): We have hosted six biennial youth-led summits since 2009, and SES is the largest student-led conference on energy in the world.
- Space for Youth: We create meaningful opportunities for young people to engage with actors in the energy system – governments, companies and other institutions – to elevate the role of youth in decision-making and planning.
To better integrate our four core programs and grow their impact, we have developed several new cross-cutting initiatives that focus on skill-building and global collaboration: the Student Energy Leaders Fellowship, Greenpreneurs, and the Global Youth Energy Outlook.
The Global Youth Energy Outlook is designed to be the definitive tool for understanding what young people want for the future of energy. The first report of its kind, the Global Youth Energy Outlook is an entirely youth-led research project that aims to connect with 50,000 young people from around the world.
The SevenGen Indigenous Youth Energy Summit unites over 200 Indigenous youth from across Canada fand commits to empowering both Indigenous youth and energy kin to continue improving connections and understandings for a shared energy vision. To sustainably and responsibly impact the global economy and energy landscape, we must include Indigenous ideology for the greater health of all entities on earth.
The International Student Energy Summit (SES) is Student Energy’s pinnacle event, occurring biennially in a different city around the world to unite hundreds of students from countries all over the globe. SES is a multidisciplinary forum where students can engage with their peers, as well as leaders in the energy industry to learn, collaborate, and take action on energy. SES is the world’s largest student-led conference on energy.
