We TALK about SUSTAINABILITY
Future of fossil industry
A talk show led by Emma Prins, lecturer in Politics at European Studies with guest speakers Sam Schwencke, climate activist and member of Extinction Rebellion, and Jeremy Bentham, member of the World Energy Council and retired after a 40-year career with Shell. You can watch the full video of the talk through this link The Future of Energy | The Hague University of Applied Sciences - YouTube.
An interesting topic that encourages the audience to think about their role as a professional, citizen and human being on this planet. Two different perspectives and visions of the energy yet both have one goal: to contribute to a better future in the fight against climate change.
With a very interactive talk show, the audience where able to share their views and opinion about sustainability statement. The audience were also given a chance to ask questions to the guest speakers. We gather, we talk, and discuss about sustainability and learn from each other in the process.
