Youth Summit

Global Energy Revolution

Why is the Youth Summit organized?

Last year’s Paris Agreement was a milestone towards saving our future. Now all of us – multinational companies and citizens alike - have to bring this agreement to life and reduce greenhouse gas emissions permanently, so that the rise of the global mean temperature stays below 1.5 degrees Celsius. To achieve this we need a Global Energy Revolution. The energy of the future is clean and inexpensive. Only then will it be possible to preserve the living environment of billions of people, only then will people be able to escape poverty and only then will future generations have a future. That is why at last year's Youth Summit we agreed to focus on a Global Energy Revolution at the 2016 summit.
