Symposium: Engendering the Energy Transition. Theory Meets Policy and Practice. South Meets North.

Date: November 23-24, 2016

Location: University of Twente, Enschede, Netherlands

Description:

The University of Twente’s Department of Governance and Technology for Sustainability (CSTM) in partnership with European Association of Development and Training Institutes (EADI), Africa Studies Centre (Leiden University) and ENERGIA invites academics, researchers and practitioners to participate in the symposium: Engendering the Energy Transition.

The symposium seeks to create a multi-discipline platform where a number of leading researchers, from the South and the North, will share experiences and understanding about how gender shapes and is shaped by their context. We aim to bring together for mutual learning researchers from different disciplines and sectors with an interest in gender.

Presentations will be based on work carried out in the South and North from a range of sectors. The symposium links to the Sustainable Energy For All (SE4ALL) Dialogue and the EU’s Horizon 2020 Programme asking for an ‘analysis of the role and the significance of gender aspects related to energy’.

The symposium is being held in conjunction with the inaugural lecture of Professor Joy Clancy, Chair of Energy and Gender.
