University of the West Indies

Description:

Student Energy at the University of the West Indies is a new club that aims to educate and empower our youth on energy topics in Trinidad and Tobago. While Trinidad and Tobago is a major exporter of petroleum and natural gas and is thereby an energy-based economy, our chapter will be an educational platform to educate our audience on the energy transition towards a sustainable energy future.  

 

Mission:

Student Energy at the University of the West Indies seeks to provide an inclusive educational setting for students of the University of the West Indies to explore topics on energy and the environment and contribute to projects that reinforce sustainable energy solutions while educating the public. We will accomplish our mission through a focus on action-oriented projects, educational platforms, networking, and skill-development workshops.

#runningdry

Mina Guli had set out to run 100 marathons in 100 days for the global water crisis but due to an injury, she is no longer able to complete this marathon on her own. The global community has since been helping Mina complete her mission by running every day.

Our chapter helped her run 673.26 KM over 5 days and on her global running day, we ran for 124.55 KM. Mina created a list highlighting 100 community water heroes and we were one of these heroes!
