TEDxAberdeen will host a TEDxSalon event exploring Aberdeen's role in the energy transition. Partnering with The University of Aberdeen, the Salon will be hosted at the Science Teaching Hub on Friday 10 November.
The energy transition is a complex and challenging process, but it is also an opportunity for the region to create new jobs, grow its economy, and become a leader in the global clean energy industry. Aberdeen has a long and proud history as the oil capital of Europe. As the world transitions to a clean energy future, the city now finds itself at the forefront of the energy transition.
Speakers at this event will share their insights on the following topics:
- Environmental impacts of renewable energy
- Jobs and skills
- Impacts on communities
- Latest energy technologies and policies
- Ensuring transition is fair and inclusive
A panel discussion will follow the speakers, where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their own thoughts on Aberdeen's energy transition.
TED Salon events are smaller, more intimate TED events, hosted by the local TEDx team. A critical element of the salon is lively discussions, allowing attendees to actively participate in the event. With much smaller audiences than a standard TEDx event, salons bring attendees together in more intimate spaces, and with more chances to get know and exchange ideas as with each other.
Register for this event today to learn more about Aberdeen's energy transition and to be a part of the conversation!
Tickets - Standard £10 / Student £7
Doors open at 1.30pm for the event to begin at 2.00pm.
