1) Youth Energy Academy (YEA)
AIT RRCAP is hosting this year’s edition of a Virtual Youth Energy Academy (YEA) at the Asian Institute of Technology from 10 to 16 October 2022. The programme is organized by AIT-RRC.AP and the Sustainable Energy Youth Network (SEYN), with the support of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and in collaboration with other partner organizations.
The YEA is a 7-day intensive programme focusing on decentralized renewable energy (DRE) approaches to address some of the climate, energy access, and developmental challenges faced by communities. A variety of interactive sessions include do-it-together practical sessions to build simple renewable energy systems. YEA aims to foster leadership, entrepreneurship, and a “can-do” attitude while equipping young people with tools to develop renewable energy applications for communities.
