Young Global Leaders – Leadership in Energy Innovation and Environmental Consideration

about the program

We are very pleased to offer a new education module on Leadership in Energy Innovation and Environmental Consideration at Princeton University’s Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, to be held July 15-18, 2018. The program brings together Young Global Leaders who are interested in addressing issues facing the globe as they relate to energy and the environment.

Directed by Prof. Lynn Loo (YGL 2012) and Prof. Elke Weber, the module will blend information/short lectures and hands-on learning on topics related to the need for technological, organizational, and financial innovation to increase optimal response and resilience to environmental challenges, like climate change.

Topics include sustainable energy technologies and systems, and decision-making challenges and opportunities. The module’s goal is to equip participants to make responsible and sustainable decisions for their organizations, which will in turn have broader impact on the management of our global resources and environment.

This course was generously supported by Howard Cox.

The application for this program has closed.
