Student Energy is a global non-profit that is creating a movement of young leaders committed to transitioning the world to a sustainable energy future.
Our mission is to open the eyes of the worlds students to all perspectives on energy.
We break this down into three main goals:
• Educate students about current issues in global energy management.
• Inspire students with the knowledge and courage to challenge the current energy system.
• Unite likeminded students motivated to lead the world to a sustainable energy future.
What We Do
Energy Literacy Platform: The new StudentEnergy.org is energy education for our generation. With an interactive energy system map, crisp write-ups, and dynamic videos it's the perfect introduction for students to dive into the world of energy.
Energy Voices: Student Energy's award winning radio show is a monthly deep dive into the world of energy. Check out all previous episodes at bit.ly/energyvoices. Be sure to give episode two a listen - it's the one that won us a national award!
International Student Energy Summit (ISES): Coming out of our fourth summit in Bali, Indonesia that hosted 700 students from over 100 countries, ISES has rapidly established itself as the pre-eminent student-driven global energy conference. ISES is an elite forum where top students from around the world learn, discuss and connect. This success was personally recognized by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in June of 2013: http://www.un.org/sg/statements/index.asp?nid=6899
Regional Summits: The Regional Summits take the purpose and passion of the ISES and implement this in a regional format. In 2014, the Regional Summits took place in Mexico City, Aberdeen, New York and Cape Town.
Chapters: We are in the early stages of working to create a network of Student Energy Chapters at universities around the world. These will allow students to become ambassadors of the organization and take action on energy in their communities.
