Energy Crossroads DK, a student based organisation planning to organise a student summit on climate and energy issues on March 10th-12th 2009.
Energy Crossroads DK is a part of a global coalition for a clean, prosperous and secure energy future (www.energycrossroads.org) and the summit in Copenhagen will be the European chapter of a series of student summits around the world through 2009.
The summit will be organised as a role-play game where students will negotiate on how to reach the bold goal of 50% reduction of CO2 emissions by 2025. There will also be keynote speakers to invigorate students and panels discussions to inspire them for the negociations. It will be a great opportunity for students to acquire and share knowledge about this crucial issue, and to network with their fellow students, organizations and possible future employers.
We also aim at making them feel a part of "Generation Renewable", the international and interdisciplinary generation of tomorrow’s leaders who are ready and willing to take serious action on these problems.
