About this event

Each day we make personal and business decisions for our benefit. Also, as part of our role in society, we have a bias to make decisions that are beneficial both personally and for the greater society. SGIN is proud to host this event to get views from very different perspectives and to see where there is common ground amongst the panelists.

This 1-hour webinar will provide you with a perspective of:

  • How youth see their contributions in our energy transition journey
  • What building developers are striving toward
  • How an economist sees the impact and challenges in energy transition
