Addressing our most pressing challenges at the intersection of climate and social justice will require a new approach to problem-solving, communicating and training. Our Student Experience Program is designed to engage university-level students who are passionate about these issues, through training and professional development opportunities that will build the skills required to effectively execute this work both within academia and in the wider community.

Accelerating the transition to a clean energy economy is one of the most important challenges of our lifetime. The key to doing this successfully is by ensuring that leading companies can identify, recruit and nurture skilled young professionals with the potential to lead this critical and fast-growing industry.
