Since 2015, Blue Planet has hosted our Student Energy Summit that educates and motivates students to find clean energy solutions to issues within their own communities. Over the last five years, our conference has generated an average of 220 attendees, partnered with numerous community experts, and inspired nearly 200 unique clean energy solutions pitched by our student attendees.
Last month, we hosted our sixth annual (and first virtual!) Student Energy Summit, a one-of-a-kind immersive learning experience designed to equip the next generation of clean energy and climate leaders with the tools they need to power a 100% renewable energy future.
We hoped that this year’s theme, Road to Recovery, would inspire students to take the future into their own hands. Over the course of two weekends, students learned about clean transportation, energy efficiency, climate equity, and clean energy policy from community experts and worked in teams to design detailed plans on how to tackle climate issues in their own communities. As those who will inherit the consequences of the choices adults make today, we believe that children and students can be the best messengers for demanding change.
