Today’s young recruits will design, develop, build and operate the infrastructure we need to deliver cleaner energy for tomorrow, and they will be our industry leaders in 2050.

“I’m delighted to become an advocate of WUN. I see this as an opportunity to help other WUN members in building good relationships with people who can offer support, even if I can’t!  Since joining WUN, I have gained fresh ideas, built confidence, gained a different perspective, strengthened business connections & advanced my career.  I am committed to partner with like-minded individuals as I see advocacy can be a powerful and important catalyst for change. I’m eager that through my advocacy work I can encourage more people to join the WUN community to realise the benefits that I’ve gained by being part of the Network. Together I hope we can organise and influence some great Networking events in the future so that we not only build long-lasting business connections but perhaps some great personal relationships too
