V. Energy Sustainability Debate

This program aims to provoke Saudi Youth to rethink energy and its sustainability and express their opinions about its future. This program is in collaboration with the Saudi Arabia Section of the Combustion Institute. http://sas-ci.com/about/

The program will be hosted in a Spectrum-style debating style and will be a hybrid event. This would require hosting an in-person session, while broadcasting it live in Zoom. So overall, it will be a hybrid event, rotating at different KSA campuses, starting with KAUST.
