A Generation 2050 round table

This virtual round table will bring young professionals from the UK and Nigeria into conversation with senior industry, government and academic figures to examine how we can boost the synergies and reduce negative trade-offs created by British investments in the energy sector of developing countries.

And, in the light of COP26, whether the integration of the Sustainable Development Goals as the main framework to support the decision-making process of foreign energy investment can help Global South nations to become more sustainable.

Speakers include:

  • Mervin Azeta, Product and Service Delivery Manager, Schlumberger, West Africa
  • Samuel Adunreke, Founder, Innovea Hubs, Nigeria
  • Demi Edosomwan, Managing Director, Emerging Markets, TotalEnergies Ventures
  • Dr Musonda Mumba, Director of The Rome Centre for Sustainable Development

Moderators from the EI Young Professional Networks in London and Nigeria:

  • Kelvin Enumah MEI, Sustainability and Development, Wetland Cultural and Education Foundation, Nigeria
  • Guilherme Castro, Project Innovation Manager, Octopus Energy
