Youth Task Force

Renewables and innovation will be the response to the climate changes and energy deficit that Africa faces. In this deeply needed path towards its just energy transition, the continent can and must rely on one of its most precious resources: its youth. 

That’s why in 2022 RES4Africa launches its Youth Task Force, a panel of young representatives from important international organizations operating in the renewable energy sector. 

The young professionals have a mutual interest in conveying youth’s voice to shape policy makers opinions, aiming at providing a platform to propose and discuss priority areas of action identifying new synergies on youth’s role within RES4Africa initiatives and programmes.
