The Energy Futures Lab has created a space for young people to learn about an inclusive and equitable energy transition, make connections in the industry and apply their unique perspective to move towards action.
At the Youth Innovation Jam, folk between the ages of 18-30 from across Alberta will sit alongside energy transition leaders for a day of exploring solutions and opportunities related to energy transition.
The Innovation Jam will be a blend of keynote talks, small group activities, two-way learning and networking. The atmosphere will be fun yet productive, and folks will be encouraged to actively engage in the topics bringing their unique perspectives and skills to the table.
