IKEM Academy "Social innovation in the energy transition" – Apply for free spots!
IKEM, a non-profit think tank in Berlin, organizes an annual expert event called the IKEM Academy: Energy and Climate, during which a different focus topic is addressed each year.
The topic of the IKEM Academy this year is "Social innovation in the energy transition". During the 5 days from 15-19 July, the Academy will start with a look at the slowly increasing awareness on a policy level that people must be at the heart of the energy transition, if we are to reach our climate targets and mobilize multi-level financing.
Our program then narrows its scope to the regional and local level, investigating examples of citizen driven initiatives that help shift our energy system and society to a low-carbon model. The last day will focus on sustainable cities, and the innovative social entrepreneurship and business models that have emerged over the past years.
Our Academy is highly international, we welcomed more than 60 different nationalities to Berlin in the past years, all passionate about driving climate action and affecting positive change, together.
This year, we would like to offer two free spots for students interested in the topic, which would include site visit to the energy autonomous village, Feldheim, workshops, lectures, and a BBQ.
If you are interested, you can apply through our online system here. Please make sure that you include "#SYL" in the "Note" section of the application in order to be eligible for the free spot. The deadline for the free spot application is May 31, 2019.
