Sustainable Energy and Social Inclusion: Bringing Awareness to our Students
The theme of this conference, “Sustainable Energy and Social Inclusion: Innovation, Impact, and Co-building the Future,” explores the intricate interplay between sustainable energy, social inclusion, and innovation. It underscores the transformative potential of sustainable energy solutions, particularly renewable energy, in driving expansive social change, fostering innovation, creating jobs, promoting gender equality, and enhancing civic participation. As an educator at my university, I am tasked with instilling this awareness in my students. While authoring textbooks on sustainable energy, gender equality, and social issues, I find myself in the dual role of a learner and an educator. In my speech, I will delve into the socio-economic and environmental impacts of an energy transition, such as long-term savings, economic growth, job creation, improved human welfare, reduced air pollution, and decreased greenhouse gas emissions. I invite the audience to actively participate in this transition and join hands in co-building a sustainable future.
