Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Flint
Project Flint is a student-led initiative that promotes energy literacy in China. By creating and spreading educational content on energy-related topics as well as holding online and in-person panels, Project Flint aims to advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The Project Flint team firmly believes that the active engagement of the youth is crucial to accelerate the energy transition, and that such involvement has to be based on a clear understanding of today's energy system and future options. In 2020, a time of great uncertainty, we plan to primarily promote energy education by holding panels in virtual forms and creating online content in collaboration with professionals, academians and NGOs.
