International Youth Deliberation on Energy Futures

What can happen when youth from all over the world get together to think collectively about energy and socially just climate futures?

The International Youth Deliberation on Energy Futures project synthesizes the voices of hundreds of youth in grades 10-12 from 22 schools in 18 countries, connecting them online in a rigorous, research based learning environment. Through weekly virtual meetings, an online virtual classroom and global video conferences, high school students share their research, examine commonalities and differences in standpoints and experiences, and identify future actions and research that are needed for energy transition in their diverse contexts. 

After six months of working together online, students met in a virtual writer’s retreat for four days of intensive deliberation, collaborative writing, and project design. Together, they produced an essay, presentation, and OpEd piece, with the aims of communicating their perspectives and spurring change in their schools, communities, and governments.
