Energy Carta was founded in 2008 by a group of like-minded friends in the National University of Singapore who felt that students too can make a difference in the world’s journey towards sustainable development. What initially started out as an adventure to have just one awesome conference (AYES2008) before leaving school, has evolved into an ongoing cause to educate youth about the opportunities within the sustainable development industry as well as develop young leaders.
In the past years, we have experimented with various ways of engaging youths, including conferences, job fairs, business case competitions and games. We have enjoyed small successes but continue to innovate as we think of the best ways to achieve our vision. We would not have been able to come so far without the kind support of corporate sponsors and supporting institutions such as the Energy Market Authority, the Energy Studies Institute and the National University of Singapore's Entrepreneurship Centre who have believed in us since our early days.
Today our alumni includes professionals spanning across sectors in cleantech investment, green building design, environmental consulting, oil and gas and many others. Regardless of our career choices, we are still united by our passion for sustainable development, people development and for Energy Carta. Together with the student leaders, we continue to invoke change through our actions.
