This year ONS Young will be placed in close proximity to the Exhibition. A staircase will connect the Young area directly to the ONS Exhibition. More activities, speakers, and fun than ever before. We welcome over 70+ speakers to our ONS Young events alone and include five target groups that all have their own events. See below to find where you fit in!

The energy industry is in a constant state of development and it is vital that the young voice is loud and clear in this transition. At ONS Young you will learn how to challenge the status quo, develop your career and network, as well as learn more about what issues need solutions within the fields of climate change, society, the energy industry, politics, and geopolitics. We want YOU to set your mark on ONS and welcome you to start your ambitions to become future leaders and make your voice heard.

Here is how it works:

  • We suggest that you come to “University Day” (Monday August 26) if you want a broad introduction to the topics of ONS Young, get updates on the energy industry, talk to academia and also young professionals from the energy industry.
