Africa faces catastrophic effects from climate change despite accounting for less than 4 percent of global carbon emissions, and the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent global energy crises resulted in severe economic implications for many African nations.

In light of Nigeria’s teeming intelligent young minds and exceptional youth talents, it has now become imperative to encourage young, brilliant minds in STEM to join the ongoing science and technological efforts and collaborations to accelerate the advancement of green technologies, reduce the negative impacts of climate change, and improve life quality in communities.

Arnergy is a fierce advocate of women in the STEM field, and we especially encourage eligible female students to embrace this opportunity and further push the boundaries in sustainable development. The “NextGen GreenTech Demo” is an excellent avenue for our brightest young minds to birth and develop powerful ideas and innovations towards achieving our collective goals of building a sustainable and prosperous Africa.
