26 September 2022
Молодежный день Международного форума «Российская энергетическая неделя»

On 14 October 2022, the Youth Day of the Russian Energy Week International Forum will be held in Moscow. The Youth Day will be attended by heads of the Russian Ministry of Energy, industry companies, universities, and 1,500 young professionals, students, and schoolchildren.

The Youth Day of the Russian Energy Week International Forum is the main event in the field of energy development, where young representatives of the fuel and energy complex meet with industry leaders and experts, exchange ideas and jointly shape the youth agenda of the fuel and energy complex for the next year.

The Russian Energy Week and its Youth Day are organized by the Roscongress Foundation and the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, with the support of the Moscow City Government. The Youth Day is operated by the Reliable Change Foundation.

The REW Youth Day programme includes activities dedicated to the promotion of the fuel energy complex and engineering education.

The central event will be a panel discussion with the participation of Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak, representatives of fuel and energy sector executives and leading companies, and young industry leaders. The guests will discuss with young people the prospects of energy sector development, digitalization in the industry, initiatives of young specialists and students and other topics. During the session, awards will also be presented to winners of federal industry competitions.

Leaders of the largest fuel and energy companies will meet at the round table ‘Fuel and Energy Complex for Youth’ and discuss youth policy and youth projects in 2023. Together with representatives of the management of the Russian Ministry of Energy, the Russian Ministry of Education and Science, the Russian Ministry of Education and Science, Rosmolodezh, and ‘Russia — Land of Opportunities’ (an autonomous non-profit organization), the formats of work within the All-Russian Youth Action Plan aimed at promoting the fuel and energy complex, energy saving, and engineering and technical education will be defined.

The final day of the REW will be a meeting place for youth industry associations. The Youth Electricity Council will hold a regular meeting, a panel session entitled ‘Youth Communities as a Catalyst for Global Processes’ and a lecture on energy information modelling technologies, augmented and virtual reality. In turn, the BRICS Youth Energy Agency will bring together representatives of different countries at the meeting ‘BRICS + Africa: New Potential for Youth Energy Cooperation’.

Among the activities are key interactive sessions for the REW Youth Day, where teams of students and young professionals will prepare projects for presentation to experts and subsequent implementation.

Teams of young professionals will traditionally meet in the REW Cup of the CASE-IN International Engineering Championship, hosted by the CASE-IN Organising Committee.

Special events for young REW participants are prepared by Rosmolodezh, the Moscow Government, Russia — Land of Opportunities, the Content Foundation, SO UES, Rosatom, Transneft, Mosenergo, Gazprom Neft, RusHydro, Hevel Group, and others.

The programme will be complemented by the final stages and awarding of the winners of federal and corporate events, including the All-Russian competition for graduate qualification papers in electric power and electrical engineering with the participation of Rosseti management and the presentation of the Youth Global Energy Outlook.

Schoolchildren will also take part in the Youth Day: a special career guidance route has been developed for them — introducing them to the Russian fuel and energy complex and REW member companies.

Throughout the day, there will be an open lecture session for participants.

The Youth Day will conclude with the traditional Energy of Youth Initiatives 2023 session, where the best youth projects will be presented and the winners of the 2022 youth competitions will be awarded. The session will result in the formation of an agenda of youth events and initiatives for 2023.

There will be an open lecture room for participants throughout the day.

Registration for the Youth Day is open on the Russian Energy Week International Forum website
