Keynote: Diane Le Goff, Global Manager of the Youth Education & Entrepreneurship CSR programs for Schneider Electric, based in Vietnam will focus her keynote “Strengthening VET, supporting the integration of women in the energy field and encouraging innovation.
Training in the energy field is a key driver for Schneider Electric to provide an inclusive answer to several challenges of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In this regard, the Youth Education & Entrepreneurship program at Schneider Electric has a specific focus on supporting people not in education, employment, or training, the youth, refugees, women in vulnerable situations, and marginalized groups of people. For more than 10 years the Schneider Electric group has been supporting technical and vocational education and training (TVET) to help build a generation of skilled manpower, which are needed at all levels of the economies. Schneider Electric is focusing on TVET as a valuable tool for sustainable development, as it allows the development of environmentally sound skills, critical for shifting toward a more sustainable economic model.. The actions are always implemented in partnership with local players and/or national or international non-profit organizations (NGOs, governments, etc.) and with Schneider Electric’s local subsidiary. The 2025 ambition is to support 1 million people trained, 10 000 trainers trained, 10 000 entrepreneurs supported. For more information see:
Exchange Sessions: Don’t forget – you can still define your own session and benefit from the ideas and suggestions of your peers. We invite you to host your own session with any question, experience, challenge, or good practice that you have related to the topic of the BarCamp. In the centre is your desire to share and discuss a particular issue with colleagues from around the world. While we provide the (virtual) room, you decide on how you want to approach the topic – you can do a short presentation, organize a workshop, or simply ask a question for an open discussion. It’s up to you! Only the time frame is fixed – a session lasts max. 50 minutes. Let us know your topic in the registration form for the event- we are happy to support you.
