Recognizing the importance of involving more young people in the oil and gas sector, the World Petroleum Council organizes Youth Forums.  The 4th WPC Youth Forum will be held in Calgary, Alberta with the theme of “Unconventional Solutions for an Unconventional World.”

Under this theme, students and young professionals from across the world will engage with current leaders and experts in a trans-generational dialogue to determine the road map towards a truly sustainable future.

Over 1200 participants – young professionals, students, academics, international experts and NGO’s – are expected to meet in Calgary from 22-25 October 2013.  Over three days the 4th WPC Youth Forum will offer three levels of discussion:

  • Keynote Plenary sessions for strategic thinking;
  • Workshops for a deep-dive into the overall themes; and
  • A networking and knowledge sharing area, the Knowledge Cafés, with facilitated break-out sessions and one-to-one discussions with industry experts.
