Student Energy at Western University
Student Energy at Western University (SEWU) seeks to provide students with the knowledge, connections, resources and practical experiences that will inspire and empower us to lead the just transition to a sustainable energy system. See our introductory video here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uB3bPo29fOnzWfl922lvWjle0BWkkYVs/view?usp=sharingSEWU joins 43 other Student Energy chapters in 24 countries developing the next generation of leaders to champion an equitable and sustainable energy system. Since its first year at Western in the fall of 2019, our club has hosted a model energy policy negotiation and climate simulation, a movie night on fusion energy featuring a Q&A with leading international fusion researchers, and partnered with Facilities Management and EnviroWestern to host Western’s first pitch competition for solutions that will help the university achieve carbon neutrality. SEWU has also led a number of advocacy, education and service initiatives, from rallying against pipelines being forced through indigenous lands, to tree planting and lobbying Western’s administration to adopt more ambitious emissions targets and divest our endowment from fossil fuels.Students interested in joining SEWU are encouraged to send us a message and introduce themselves via our Facebook, Instagram, or email. We look forward to welcoming you to our community!
