L-R: European Student Energy Summit 2014  co-organisers Lora Dimitrova and Malgorzata OIesiewicz.

Europe’s biggest student energy summit will be held in Aberdeen next June following a successful bid to stage the event.

Regional Student Energy Summits will occur simultaneously around the globe, with Aberdeen confirmed as the European winner, Mexico City winning the bid for Latin America and Cape Town hosting the African event. The winners in North America and Asia are yet to be announced.

“Competing with rival European universities to host this event was challenging – but nothing compared to what now lies ahead of us,” says co-organiser Lora Dimitrova, part of the student team behind the bid.

“Hosting this regional summit is a unique opportunity to highlight our country, city and university to some of the brightest young minds in energy. The event will address regional issues while simultaneously giving delegates a deep understanding of the role their region plays in global energy systems and dynamics.”

The organisers are now looking to recruit a student volunteers to help make the European Student Energy Summit (ESES) a reality.

“We are determined to put on the best summit possible, and to do that we need as many bright, enthusiastic volunteers as we can get,” says Lora. “Students can come from any academic discipline as long as they have an interest in energy and the role our generation can play in educating and influencing the way we power our society.”

To find out more about the event, or to get involved in the organising team, head to the ESES Facebook page or follow @ESES2014 on Twitter.
