Youth Day to be held as part of the Russian Energy Week
A Youth Day at the REW will be organised on October 7 as part of the International Russian Energy Week forum. Over 4,000 young experts, university and school students will meet 500 senior managers and representatives from respective industries to discuss the present and the future of the fuel and energy sector.
This will be the largest communication and information platform for students, young experts from the relevant industries and representatives of youth communities, unions and associations within the fuel and energy sector.
The event will become an opportunity for the new generation to get a better idea of the potential of the Russian energy sector, to learn more about the corporate and national experience in implementation of energy and energy efficiency projects, as well as put forward their own ideas about the future technological development of the industry.
Participants will be able to apply the acquired knowledge in practice and potentially receive support for their projects and initiatives. The latter will serve as an incentive for their further personal and professional development and active engagement in current challenges of the Russian fuel and energy sector.
A casual meeting with the Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak will become a key event of the Youth Day. The participants will be able to ask the Minister a few questions in person.
The Youth Day will also include a presentation of the results of the key projects of 2017, such as the Russian #VmesteYarche festival and the International engineering competition ‘Case-in’, as well as a discussion of their prospects.
