Generation 2050

Message from the initiative

Climate change is an intergenerational emergency. Young people are by far the most concerned about it and will be most affected by it. It is compounded by the need to meet growing global energy demand, in particular for the billions still living without adequate access to energy.

Professionals under the age of 35 working in energy today will be the industry’s leaders in 2050. They will inherit a sector which will be judged on how it has responded.

Generation 2050 is a new initiative from the Energy Institute, its global Young Professionals Networks and our partners that aims to provide a platform for young professionals around the world to have a louder voice in the big debates about climate change, access to energy, and energy security.

At the heart of it is a mass survey aimed at capturing the views and perspectives of young professionals working in energy around the world. If this is you, please fill out the survey below and help inform the Generation 2050 manifesto that will be published later in the year.

If you share our belief that we should listen to tomorrow’s energy leaders today, this is the project for you. Watch this space or subscribe to stay in the loop, or contact us if you would like to get involved as a supporting partner or supporting network.
