Climate Entrepreneurs Workshop

Wednesday 4 December 2019, 13:00 - 16:00
Worsley SR 8.11G
  • Are you interested in taking an active part in the energy transition using your research expertise?
  • Are you looking for a platform where you could develop and implement ideas with like-minded early career researchers to will help to reach the UK 2050 net-zero greenhouse gas emissions goal?

Join us for a workshop with Jochen Cremer, founder of the Climate Entrepreneurs Club.

Jochen will share insights from his work with young people on climate change and sustainable energy, and introduce us to the Climate Entrepreneurs Club. This will be followed by a brainstorming session and discussion targeting the implementation of a similar club at the University of Leeds.

This event is open to all researchers at the University of Leeds, and is especially relevant for PhD students, Early-Career Researchers and MSc students. It is being hosted by the Institute of Applied Geoscience and the Priestley International Centre for Climate.

If you would like to attend, please email Charlotte Botter



Jochen Cremer works on driving the energy world to a sustainable future. He is a postgraduate student at Imperial College London working on the optimisation and control of energy systems. He has been the Co-Chair of the International Student Energy Summit in 2019 in London that gathered together a large international group of young people. This has led to the creation of the Climate Entrepreneurs Club which is run by postgraduate students (PhDs and MSc) to connect like-minded students. Their aim is to create a movement of young people that will find solutions that can be implemented through entrepreneurship. Their goals are to participate together as a community in start-up challenges that the university runs or to join accelerators later.
