YES! Youth Energy Summit


Invest in Africa’s next generation of Energy Leaders

Opportunities beyond privilege

EnergyNet’s YES! Youth Energy Summit launched at the Africa Energy Forum in Brussels 21 - 24 June 2022. We’re creating a platform and network for early career professionals, entrepreneurs, students and educators to boost the skills, connections and business readiness of a new generation of African energy Leaders.

The YES! Youth Energy Summit is recruiting from corporates, foundations, NGOs, universities, and other initiatives.

We will support hundreds of Africans in public and private sector roles learn how to develop and prosper, with both soft and technical skills, and the opportunity to meet with peers and senior influencers from across the continent.

Working with partner organisations, we’ll amplify access to the many complementary initiatives that are becoming available across the continent. YES! is actively seeking partners as we scale up.
