The Asian Energy Youth Summit – organised by the non-profit organisation Energy Carta – is an example of doing something about the climate-change challenge.

Speakers at the event which takes place in Singapore on 30-31 October (please click the link at the top of this post for the full PDF) include Shai Agassi of Project Better Place and Stefan Mueller, Asia Pacific managing director of Conergy.

What’s heartening is that a chemicals engineering undergraduate at the National University of Singapore is one of the founders of Energy Carta. The chemicals industry is part of the problem and can hugely reshape its image for the better by being part of the solution.
