Official launch of the Nordic Energy Equality Network (NEEN)

We are pleased to invite you to the official launch of the Nordic Energy Equality Network (NEEN). NEEN’s objective is to be the Nordic umbrella for the promotion of gender diversity and empowerment of women, forming a Nordic voice for an inclusive sustainable energy transition. Welcome to an inspiring evening at Culture House Fanny!

The NEEN launch event will take place at the VAASA Climate Change Conference & Networking Forum 2019, wherein a panel discussion has been organized by NEEN, dedicated to the importance of gender diversity in the Nordic energy sector. Key female speakers from the Nordic energy sector will share their views on the topic and highlight the role of women in the transition towards a low-climate impact energy system and how their engagement is crucial for the sector.
