We’re pleased as punch to announce our Chapter’s involvement in the Energy4me initiative. Through our direct participation in the Advisory Team for North Sea, South, Central, and Eastern Europe we’ll be helping create a sustainable energy education program and sharing best practices in conducting school visits and Energy4me events.
This could not have come at a more opportune time, as one of the central objectives of our board this time around is strengthening awareness of our industry for non-specialists and potential students in particular. In collaborating with other regional chapters we’ll tailor-make edutainment programs designed to educate students and the general public about the energy industry and motivate them to pursue careers in the STEM fields. By organizing school visits (Corona restrictions will mean possible online sessions!) we’d demonstrate in a fun, engaging and easily digestible way the roles, responsibilities, and benefits of a Petroleum Engineer in the context of the challenges awaiting us.
We look forward to working closely with the Energy4me team and hope that we can have a positive impact on our community. We’ll keep you posted on any new developments.
