Renewable Energy Advocacy Leadership Program for Future Leaders

Renewable Energy Advocacy Leadership Program for Future Leaders

You are creative, curious, brave, involved and willing to take action to transform yourself and the world around you. You want to find out how the lives of millions of people can be improved through green and inclusive energy access.

You are keen to learn how to navigate and influence power structures, listen, reflect and represent the needs of a community and engage people in issues to create a better future. Then this might be for you!

Green and Inclusive Energy is a unique program run by Hivos that aims to create advocacy leaders in the area of improved renewable energy access.

It believes that if people have affordable and reliable access to decentralized renewable energy sources, they can transform their life.

There are many challenges in making this happen but the main one is creating political will and getting sufficient resources.

This is why the program needs more young leaders who have the skills, knowledge and attitude to advocate together with their communities to create the change needed. From 6-11 October Hivos will bring young future leaders from Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Kenya together in Arusha, Tanzania for a 5-day intensive course.

The Program

If you want to make a difference in the world, you will discover that change starts from within. And that’s where the program will start.

Then Hivos will move to investigating and experiencing the economic and social benefits renewable energy access can bring, understand what is behind an advocacy campaign and provide you with the skills to master public speaking and lobbying.

After the face to face training Hivos will ask you to run an advocacy effort to practice and cement your skills and share your stories in a follow up meeting.

The top participant(s) will be able to bring their advocacy to an international forum of energy and development policy makers

This program takes an action based rather than a theoretical approach as you learn best by doing and sharing. This means you will spend almost no time looking at power points or sitting behind desks.

Eligibility Criteria

Hivos is looking for individuals from Kenya and Tanzania, up to 35 years old, who: Strongly believe in making a positive difference in their lives and the lives of others. Want to (re)discover their passions and dreams.
