Join the Vlerick Alumni Senior Club for the great energy debate 2022. Our expert panellists will discuss the biggest questions we’re facing regarding carbon neutrality. And you’ll get the chance to continue the debate over drinks and snacks.
Our club is made up of experienced alumni and faculty. It provides a friendly, non-political environment to reflect on past, present, and future aspects of business and society.
The energy crisis is one of the most important issues we’re facing right now.
The way we use energy now - and in the future - will shape the way we live and work for years to come. The economic consequences, social impact and financial costs of our decisions can’t be ignored.
But which energy sources should we be using? Are they reliable, affordable and safe? Could energy be weaponised? And how does all of this fit in with our climate goals? These are just some of the questions we’ll put to our panellists at the great energy debate. Join us to hear their thoughts – then afterwards meet like-minded alumni, exchange ideas and insights and enjoy good company.
